    Thank you so much. I wasnt sure about the appeal but glad I did it! Mrs O annoyed me because she contradicted herself in the report and also said I havent been minding long so couldnt get a good!

    Well done you - let's hope your particular Mrs O got marked down when you won your appeal - who inspects the inspectors!

    I did think that about if she comes and inspects me in the future, will she be funny with me, but my DO said she has to remain professional. Oh well, I have done it now and glad I did because I believed I was better, plus very difficult when I only mind a 15 mth old.

    I appealed and wasn't so lucky.... I was told by Ofsted that if you appeal about an Inspector they make sure you are not inspected by them again in the future.

    Well done you!

    Well done you! It's great to read that you took on Ofsted and won.

    Highly unlikely but if you do get the same inspector next time you should be able to request a different one

    Keep smiling!
