MP Sarah Champion delighted by Rotherham Council's kids' services turnaround

MP SARAH Champion said she was “extremely pleased” with the turnaround in Rotherham’s children’s services revealed by inspectors from Ofsted.

The Rotherham MP (pictured), who has campaigned against child sexual exploitation, described the “good” rating announced today as “validation of a service that has worked incredibly hard to turn itself around in the last few years”.

She added: “I have seen the passion, commitment and drive of RMBC staff across the organisation to make children’s services the best they can be.

“Of course, there is always room for improvement, but the transformation of services I have seen deserves today’s recognition. 

“Well done and thank you to all involved.”
