Is anyone able to substantiate my current thinking?

 

I can nominate a member of staff to be my Deputy without them taking the Responsible Person Interview with Ofsted.

 

This Deputy could run the group in my short term absence still without the Ofsted Interview

 

I don't need to formally let Ofsted know who my Deputy is or fill in any forms.

 

 

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

Yes. At my Ofsted I explained about how my deputy had been recruited, and she said it was only at the point she became a partner or took over the business from me that she'd need a Suitable Persons interview and so on.

I am a private playgroup I had my suitable person interview. This was 4 years ago now so things might have changed. I was horrified that ofsted did not want to know who was my deputy and who I had working for me. They said that it was my responsibility to ensure all checks etc were in place.

 

May be worth a phone cal just to check if things have changed.
