Education Inspection Framework - Early years inspection handbook

The Early Years Inspection Handbook for Ofsted registered provision was published yesterday.

The handbook describes the main activities inspectors undertake when they conduct inspections of early years providers in England, which are registered under sections 49 and 50 of the Childcare Act 2006.

The handbook, which applies from September 2019, also sets out the judgements that inspectors will make and will report upon.

We are delighted to let you know that The Education People’s Early Years and Childcare Service ‘Leadership and Workforce Conference’ will feature Ofsted’s Gill Jones HMI Deputy Director Early Education, speaking about the NEW Education Inspection Framework.

The Education People’s Early Years and Childcare Service will be providing briefing sessions on the framework very soon, followed by workshops related to the NEW Ofsted judgements.
