    Default observations etc

    I've just been asked, if, during these interesting times, we still need to do observations of the children ? !

    I said I presumed so, because otherwise how are we going to know how they are doing? BUT, I personally, am not going to be rushing to do any, or to do anything much more than just pottering around and playing and being happy!

    i have been cutting right back ... and now is the time to do so even more!

    the cm i spoke to had been told that as we were just 'babysitting' in these times, normal service did not continue, someone else had been told that if she had any new starters, she had to do baselines assessments and obs to get to 'know' that child ... and prove it! who too, i'm not sure!

    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door

    Yes - continue to watch and listen - continue to plan for the individual child and do anything else you normally do to support learning.

    No - put yourself under pressure to write anything down apart from the 2 year progress check.

    Now might be a good time, if you are a little quieter or stopped altogether, to go through your paperwork and make some changes!

    Bear in mind Ofsted are asking questions - not looking at anything in writing beyond what is statutory
