I believe the same is happening to cms but no one has raised that with Ofsted on our behalf...it isn't just nurseries and preschools who get inspected and drop grades?

Nursery World would be interested to hear from any cms who have experienced a drop in grade at their recent inspection
If you feel strongly do contact them

Now I am worried! I was just inspected on Wednesday and she said reports are now taking up to 14 days to come out due to the changes in the quality assurance checks. I can not see how I could be downgraded but feel someone on the panel will question the grade I got.

Maybe we need to convince PLA to speak up on our behalf as well - they seem to be the very proactive at the moment.

I am due to receive their childminder membership pack soon - I wonder what they will be offering? :D
