    Default Can an inspector ring after an inspection

    Hi

    So far

    Per reg on 21st told by inspector all met ok, (she checked everything, tested my fire alarms, looked at glass brAckets, and put towels over my bathroom door, because i needed a safety catch on it! so a through inspection and three and half hours of questions) said that she would do report that night

    Week later rang 28th ofsted to be told that inspector had not issued report yet!

    Today 1st July, inspector rang me to ask couple of questions and when I asked when she would send report, told she didn't know!


    Can she ring after the pre reg meeting?

    I am really really angry about this. As she promised it would of been done onn21st. Have mindee waiting to sign and need to get sorted out. Stuck in limbo . Am now on week 16 since they received my docs. This whole process has been a nightmare.

    I would guess that she is writing her report now and rang to double check was she wasn't shore of. Reports normally take 2 weeks, so anytime now

    They can take as long as they want - and ring as many times as they want - I'm afraid Ofsted work at their own pace.

    Frustrating but nothing you can do. Hugs xx

    Thanks for the replies. It's so frustrating because she said she would do it the night of the inspection, so why has it taken her over a week to ring to check something!

    Just want it all sorted out now. Really fed up.

    She might have handed it to her boss and been asked something hence ringing you for clarification.

    Unhappy

    Hi.

    No news. Really frustrated and now a bit upset by it all.
    Have checked on Ofsted website but no report there as yet. Don't know whether to ring them or not, as just don't want to hear again that nothing has been sorted.
    Stuck in limbo.

    That's does seem unfair, it's taken a long time and they haven't given you even an idea of when it will all be ready.
    Maybe she's new?
    I'd be on at them saying you've got clients waiting and it's costing you money. Not really much else you can do besides sit and wait. Hoping it get sorted for you ASAP xx

    Am I correct in understanding that you are per-reg. I didn't realise you got a report from the per-reg, in my day, a mere 4 years ago, you just got your registration certificate.

    Me either I'm confused as to whether this is pre reg (won't get a report will just get the go ahead) or a first inspection (doesn't matter if you have report to sign up a child)

    Thanks for clearing up that Emma!

    I am pre reg and the inspector has to submit her report to Ofsted for me to get my certificate.

    I have looked on the oFsted website to see if I have been added on with my reg no etc. as cant sign children without a registration document.

    Phew!

    I had my pre reg a couple of weeks and phoned ofsted last week, on the Wednesday, to see if they had got the report, which they had. Waited for certificate which still hadn't arrived yesterday. So phoned ofsted again and they said it was sent tues hopefully should get it by the end of the week. Certificates can take 10 working days before they are sent. Just keep phoning ofsted everyday

    When I registered nearly 5 years a go I had my pre-reg visit on May 1st and didn't receive my reg certificate until July 24th!

    Ofsted were happy for me to start minding without the physical certificate being here, when they had issued it and it was on their website, and MM were happy to start my insurance from that point too, so I was able to start minding when I needed to (had a client waiting). Ring ofsted as much as needed, they were really helpful.
