    Default Report back-finally!

    Finally got my inspection report today and wish I hadn't!! Got a grade 3 as a result of the state of the house due to reorganisation going to argue against a couple of points made but won't make a difference to overall grade unfortunately

    It's a shame that the inspector couldn't look beyond the end of her nose and realise that the house would soon be sorted out - I know a childminder who got satisfactory because her daughter moved in for a few days waiting to complete on her new house and had brought some furniture with her, then the move got delayed because of snow, but the inspector managed to get through the snow and down graded her because of the muddle caused by extra furniture.

    I would argue about the points you don't agree with to try to get them removed from your report, but hopefully after the length of time you have been minding most of your work comes from word of mouth and people won't really mind about your report anyway. Sending you a , remember "sticks and stones will break my bones, but words can never hurt me"!

    Thanks parents have all said they are more than happy with care given to their children and know that they were still being well looked after and kept safe during the reorganising so I'm not too bothered by the report just a bit disappointed to go from grade 6 down to 3!! Lowest grading I've ever had

    The only way now then is back up.

    If I had planned to go out I would have gone out if the Inspector turns up on the off chance unless she had said it was a complaints driven inspection.

    Well finally after many months of waiting I am getting a visit tomorrow from the inspector and her manager!! I waited four months for a reply to my error report before giving up waiting and putting in a complaint, finally got a phone call two weeks ago to say they were coming out to discuss my 'issues'! No idea if they're coming just to talk or if it's going to be another inspection so bit stressed at the moment lol , hopefully will get things sorted out though and might get grade changed watch this space lol
