Ofsted Assurance inspections

The purpose of these inspections is to:

  • find out what it is like for children in their early years setting
  • seek assurance that providers continue to meet requirements to remain on the Early Years Register and, if applicable, the Childcare Register

These inspections will result in a report that will give parents information and reassurance about what is happening in their child’s setting. This is particularly important at a time when, due to the protective measures in place, parents are not entering settings as much as they usually do.

During these assurance inspections, providers must demonstrate how they:

  • meet the learning and development requirements, if appropriate
  • meet the safeguarding and welfare requirements
  • develop and deliver the educational programmes, if appropriate
  • identify children’s starting points and ensure that children make progress in their learning and development, through effective planning, observation and assessment, if appropriate
  • safeguard children
  • work in partnership with parents, carers and others
  • offer an inclusive service
  • evaluate their service and strive for continuous improvement

Inspectors will find out how providers have addressed any actions and/or recommendations from the last inspection.

The assurance inspection will not result in a judgement of quality. But it will consider whether the setting continues to meet EYFS requirements. The inspection will therefore result in 1 of 3 possible outcomes:

  • met
  • not met with actions
  • not met with enforcement

 Our Outcome: MET
