    Default OFSTED annual fee-whats it for?

    I understood paying the £25 registration fee when I registered but what is the £30 annual fee actually for & what happens if I don't pay it because I wasn't aware of an annual fee so the invoice has come as a bit of a shock

    It's to pay for them to come out and inspect us!

    And other things I imagine

    If you don't pay they deregister you

    I dare the next person on here to have an Ofsted inspection to tell the inspector 'I pay your wages you know!'

    I would love to but I don't think I'd be brave enough. Would be interested to know if anyone else is and the outcome, will be hilarious!!!!

    It is used to purchase copious amounts of red tape with which to trip us up.

    Also it is used to pay people to come up with faults where none could be obviously seen.

    And do you not realise how expensive goal post moving is ?
