Looked after children data collection: 2015 to 2016 changes
In respect of looked after children, there is a new requirement in collection year 2015 to 2016 for local authorities to enter the Ofsted unique reference number (URN) when preparing their SSDA903 returns where the setting is subject to Ofsted inspections.

For children’s homes, this would be the URN of the individual home; for foster or adoptive placements, this would be the URN of the relevant service or agency providing the placement; for larger providers with multiple settings or branches, this would mean that the precise URN for the particular setting or branch will be required.

The data, which will cover roughly 90% of all placements, will be used to map placement use more accurately, to enable better understanding of placement patterns and to help improve understanding of why children are placed in certain placements and what effect this has on them.
