Recent Ofsted...recommendation to gather more information about the ch


Recommended Posts

Following a recent Ofsted inspection, in addition to basic registration/personal contact details and medical info, we were advised to gather more information about the child.


We currently gather on a separate sheet from our welcome pack the following info:


"All about me" What the child likes to play....what they don't like....favourite snack...special comforter....my best friend.....


The Ofsted inspector suggests we should be gathering more details....for example:-


Nature of child....i.e shy, confident...etc

Words spoken....

Fave books....


I wondered what other people are using right now...and if anybody has a format that may help in designing a new sheet/booklet to gather information on new children attending the setting!


Thank you in advance :))

we have a sheet with all 7 areas of learning on it and ask the parents to tell me about their child - his likes/dislikes etc and just put it where i think is relevant.

there is also a section for parents to tell us about any concerns they may have prior to starting.

We just had ofsted and they were satisfied with it
