  1. Ofsted form

    So received this link from County today advising us that everyone has to complete it, surely it is just the EY3 that we update when needed anyway? Anyone else been told to do this? https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-years-and-childcare-providers-ey3-changes-to-individuals?utm_source=f1ead443-7ab9-4868-9d19-62896d543688&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=govuk-notifications&utm_content=immediate

    Oh my goodness, I have no words!
  3. Inadequate woes

    I feel for you, it must be an absolutely awful experience and it could happen to any of us, all it takes is one small thing that has not been updated or missed. As hard as it must be it sounds like you have a lot of support around you and the only way is up. I agree with the above comment about not forgetting the children, despite the yards of red tape, the endless updating of policies and procedures and trying to keep up to date with everything just remember why we do what we do and who we do it for. Very best wishes on your next inspection. Let us know how it goes.
  4. I am still waiting for a couple of parents to download their child's LJ, can I still delete the children without affecting this or do I have to wait until the parent has downloaded the journal? Eager to get set up for the new year but don't want to jeopardise the journals!
  5. Lock Down Policy

    It’s sad isn’t it? I know we probably have to prepare children, just in case but they shouldn’t be worrying about things like that at their age.
  6. Lock Down Policy

    😱going to pretend I haven’t seen this, haven’t got this policy, never heard of it and never been asked for it. I wonder if this is just in your part of the country or will be all over?
  7. Safeguarding

    I agree, I think as you know in advance that they are both away, you have a duty to be compliant with the DSL rules.
  8. What is the app? And how much is it please?🙂
  9. flexible working request

    It certainly is when you get tricky staff. The children are a breeze in comparison!
  10. The spreadsheet is really good and the how to guide looks very clear and helpful from what I have looked at! 🙂
  11. So when we return in September I have been told that I need to really analyse and break down into smaller groups the data that we get from our termly tracking sheets. So my question is, do I use where the children are now, as their starting point in September?
  12. Moving to school site

    Personally I would continue with the plan that you have now and avoid the school. I know it’s hard for us Pre-schools these days but at least you will be independent and could then concentrate on building up good transitions with the school rather than being possibly taken over by them.
  13. Birdies

    If you are a member of the PSLA they have an online CPD called EDUCARE with many free courses to choose from.
  14. So it is possible to do away with the middle man then? I guess I just cancel cool milk and let NMRU know.👍
