Assessment Timeliness


Children's social care assessments are completed in a timely manner

This measure gives the timeliness of assessments for both new and existing children. Timeliness of assessments remains consistently high, having stayed at 93-98% for the last 12+ months.

Timeliness in Shropshire exceeds both SN and England averages.

There continues to be a drive to improve quality and timeliness of assessments across the children’s social work teams, which now appears to be consistently maintained.
