Hi everyone,

I have just been on the CRB tracking website to check on the progress of my son's CRB (ok, yes I admit I have been checking it every day since they received it on 4 Jan!!!!)
anyway it's done! :eek:
It's on it's way to Ofsted YIPPEEEEEEE!!!!!! :jump for joy:

I am in shock! I presume that my reg certificate won't be too long coming now??? It's the only thing Ofsted are waiting on, all other checks (as far as I am aware) have been done :laughing:

I'm sooooo excited, & I just can't hide it!! :blush:

Big Grin :D

I didn't even know there was such a web site, wish i'd have know about that when i was waiting for mine!

Glad things are moving along for you. That is very quick - mine took months!

thats great news Karen, I think its usually a week after they receive all checks back it is passed to the chair to be signed and is sent out to you xxx

OFSTED posted out my certificate the same day that they received my CRB back!

Not long now, congrats.

Thanks for everyones good wishes.

Congrats to you too, Raggydolls :jump for joy:

Marlene, this is the link to the ofsted tracking website: https://secure.crbonline.gov.uk/enquiry/

It will ask for your crb ref number & date of birth.

My son received the CRB this morning! So, I couldn't resist ringing ofsted for a progress report :D
They said they haven't received their copy but that was usual & he said that it'll probably be there tomorrow. He confirmed that it was the only check they were waiting on & then a decision could be made. He said I should hear middle of next week :laughing:

I posted in December about my worries about my son having a caution. This has shown up on his CRB so hopefully it won't mean thet they refuse to register me. I did declare it, & at my pre-reg inspection the inspector said it should be ok but praised us for being honest & not trying to hide it as that would delay things. (That was thanks to the advice that I followed from this forum :clapping: so thank-you everyone, you are all stars :) by the way, my new business will be Bright Stars Childminding :thumbsup: )

Thanks again to you all :thumbsup:
