View Full Version : I'm new on here and need your help re:Upcoming Ofsted Inspection!

Arrgghhh I am in panic mode, dont know why have been minding for 4 years but this is my first inspection under EYFS. Wondered if you ladies could help me out with a few questions :)

Firstly would I have been automatically added to the childcare register or is this something I need to do?

Secondly, I have NO idea how to start my EYFS profiles (as awaiting training) but think Ofsted will want to see something.

And lastly, I have a Kitten, what do I do about her litter tray when Ofsted here?

Thanks x

You should have recieved information on the childcare registers but Ofsted will do all this for you. You should have recieved a Eyfs pack last year and begun using it, so yes they will want to see learning journeys etc...for each child. As long as the little children do not have access to the litter tray there is no problem. Good luck.:thumbsup:

I havent been on any efys training myself yet. (I must do it) But this forum will help you out a great deal with any problems you may have. Get your obs and your planning together and maybe the children's scrapbooks as they will want to see all of that.(Says she who is behind on everything!lol) Learning journey's im lost with, need to scour here a bit more.
So welcome to this wonderful forum, and good luck on your inspection. :)
