Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages. At St Edmund’s we have 3 separate inspections – for the Nursery School, the Children’s Centre and the Childcare Provision (EY Register). We are currently outstanding across all 3 areas.
For more information about Ofsted, and to find an inspection report for any school, childcare provider of children’s centre please click here.
