To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what plans he has to further review the performance and management of Oakhill training centre following the recent Ofsted inspection report.
Answer (Dr Phillip Lee)
The Ofsted inspection report on Oakhill Secure Training Centre is unacceptable and we have taken urgent action to address the concerns raised by Ofsted. A new interim Director, with extensive experience, has been appointed at Oakhill and an experienced HMPPS Governor has been brought in to provide extra scrutiny.
We are robustly monitoring performance against the contract and are clear that we will take further steps, if needed, to improve delivery.
More widely across the estate, we are investing £64 million to reform youth custody and increase staffing, to improve safety and reduce violence.
