Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills. They regulate and inspect to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.
The Education and Inspections Act, which established the new Ofsted, specifically requires that they
- promote service improvement
- ensure services focus on the interests of their users
- see that services are efficient, effective and promote value for money
Ofsted inspect our settings and carry out regulatory visits to ensure that we effectively support children through the EYFS and deliver the aims of the framework. Following an inspection of a setting, the nursery receives a full report documenting the inspectors findings. These are available to view on the nursery pages of this website.
