Hi Jolene

 

Can't really help as I am pre-school..........do you have an advisor at all - sorry can't think of the right term for childminders........or could you check online with the NCMA (is that right - I think so)....

 

Good luck! :o

I've just been inspected and the inspector said she thought my policies were very good. I based all of them on the EYFS using the welfare requirements etc.... as I was under the impression that when Ofsted come they are inspecting you based on you delivery of the EYFS and not on your over 8 care. The only thing I did include was a statement explaining the 3 registers, and a small bit about ratios and that the care of any child over 8 would not adversely affect the care of the younger children.

Just thought I'd add that I think its dreadful that our care for the over 5's is not seen to be as important as the EYFS children. Ofsted inspector never asked once about the older children in my care and how they were progressing, I think I could have locked them all in a cupboard and she wouldn't have cared less!!!

good luck tink let me know how u get on X

 

THANKS FOR THAT MREWILSON - i agree more focus is definately put on under 5's. I have a statement like you say re different registers so hopefully that will be enough.

HOW DID YOUR INSPECTION GO?

Inspection went very well. I got outstanding in all areas so very pleased with it. She was a lovely inspector, she was very late turning up, so the first thing she said to me was how sorry she was. I thought that was a good way to start an inspection.... with the inspector saying sorry!!!!!!
