Ofsted reveals true picture on child deaths
The time story reports Ofsted's report into child deaths from abuse. This figure gives around 200 a year rather than the government's 100 a year (80+). The report is available here
Quoting from the reportSince April 2007, Ofsted has been responsible for
receiving notifications of serious incidents involving
children and for evaluating the quality of serious case
reviews. Between 1 April 2007 and 31 August 2008, Ofsted
received notifications from local authorities of 424 serious
incidents, relating to 282 deaths of children, 136 incidents
of significant harm or injuries and six incidents of which the
outcome is not yet known. Four in 10 incidents involved
babies under the age of one.
Their figures are closer to those I have produced than those of the government.
