  3. Accountability and Training: Our senior management team demonstrates a clear commitment to safeguarding. We maintain rigorous recruitment procedures, conduct regular training and uphold best practices to ensure all colleagues are equipped to safeguard children effectively.

  4. Online Safety: We educate both children and staff about online safety, enabling them to identify and mitigate online risks effectively. We stay abreast of new technologies to keep children safe online.

Ofsted Registration: Our Assurance of Quality and Safety

360 CRS is proud to be registered with the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted), the governing body that regulates services which care for children and young people, and those providing education in England. Our Ofsted registration is a testament to our unwavering commitment to upholding the highest standards of safety and well-being for every child in our care.


Our Ofsted-Registered Commitment:
  1. Comprehensive Oversight: Being Ofsted-registered means we undergo rigorous, regular inspections to assess the quality and effectiveness of our care. These inspections ensure we consistently provide safe, inclusive, and nurturing environments for children to develop and learn.

  2. Continuous Improvement: Feedback from Ofsted inspections is critical for our ongoing development. We actively use insights from these evaluations to refine our practices, ensuring we always offer the best care and education that meet the evolving needs of children and the high standards set by Ofsted.

  3. Partnership and Provider Confidence: For stakeholders and local authorities, our Ofsted registration offers peace of mind. It ensures that 360 CRS not only meets the required legal standards but also values and invests in high-quality care, reinforcing our shared goal of fostering the well-being and future success of their children.

  4. Collaborative Engagement: We believe that the standards set by Ofsted are a collective responsibility. Our staff, stakeholders and wider community are engaged in a partnership to maintain these standards, with open communication and transparency at the heart of our collaborative efforts.

  5. Promoting Best Practices: Our Ofsted registration is integral to our mission. It aligns with our philosophy of continuous learning and improvement, not only in compliance with regulatory standards but also in the compassionate, informed care we provide. We actively promote best practices in safeguarding, welfare, and learning strategies as guided by Ofsted’s comprehensive framework.

At 360 CRS, we view our Ofsted registration as more than just a regulatory requirement—it is a guiding light for our operations, a measure of our dedication, and an ongoing promise to our community. We are dedicated to maintaining the high standards expected of us, and we welcome the scrutiny that comes with our commitment to excellence in child care.
