Information About Private Fostering

Under the Children Act 1989, there is a legal requirement for local authorities to be notified of any private fostering arrangements. Children’s Social Care has a duty to undertake assessments and checks, and to provide support and advice to the child and to the private foster carer. In Sheffield, private fostering work is undertaken by the Families, Adopters and Carers Team (FACT), in Children’s Specialist Services.

The Advisory Service can be contacted on 0114 205 3535. Children’s Social Care can be contacted on 0114 273 4855.

Please see the fact sheet below for further information.

Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school.

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.

By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child's school.
