Dear Sir or Madam,

In the past Ofsted did a Joint Area Review (JAR), of your local
authority. Just in connection with it's finding on your services to
Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC) and former UASC who
are Care Leavers, can you please provide copies of.

A) Any internal reports, business plans, actions plans, projects or
any other written material you hold that either highlights or
discusses how these JAR findings will responded to, services
improved or give explanations of the context and history to these
findings.

B) Any written strategic plans you have to address the JAR's
concerns in has reported for this vulnerable group of children in
care or care leavers.

OFSTED identified the following concerns about your services.

[ Only three quarters of looked after children over 15have a personal adviser. While clear transition protocols are in place they are not always followed when young people are being transferred to the leaving care team, which is not satisfactory. A significant number of unaccompanied asylum-seeking minors are not receiving adequate support.]

Yours faithfully,

Cassidy, J

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

YOu seem to have just provided information that is already in the public domain and a copy of the JAR report I have already and is the one quoted from in my original information request.

On Sections A and B of my request:

"A) Any internal reports, business plans, actions plans, projects or
any other written material you hold that either highlights or
discusses how these JAR findings will responded to, services
improved or give explanations of the context and history to these
findings.

B) Any written strategic plans you have to address the JAR's
