    Default Thank you!

    I've been reading this forum for a couple of years now and got lots of great ideas and tips from all of you. I just had my inspection last week and got an Outstanding Grade! I couldn't have done it without this forum and especially Sarah's SEF prompts so thank you all.

    She was definitely concentrating on how well I knew the children, what stage their development was and how was I going to support them on their next steps, transitions and lack of progress (one of mine has a significant speech delay). She skimmed through the files, focused on the safeguarding and fire procedures and complimented how organised it all was. I'd taken the advice of some on here and had a set of files clearly labelled:
    Safeguarding - audit, copies of relevant policies
    Eyfs - inc framework, previous reports, support officer visit and sef's, photo evidence of areas of learning
    Food hygiene
    Planning - continuous provision and inspiration ideas
    Certificates
    Training - all training leaflets etc
    Risk ax and policies

    Lucy, well done, and thanks for your detailed feedback. Especially on the folders/SEF.

    It sounds as if you worked really hard. Well deserved, I say!!

    All the best,
