The Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, inspect and regulate services that care for children and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages. It is paramount that children are protected, and this is apparent in the approach to enforcement.
Welfare and Safeguarding
Ofsted act immediately on any information that suggests the welfare of children are not safeguarded, or that children are at risk of harm or being harmed. Ofsted do regular checks within childcare settings to secure compliance with the law and continuously improve the quality of the setting. Ofsted inspect and regulate local services such as child-minding, child day care, children’s centres, children’s social care, CAFCASS, state schools, independent schools, teacher training providers, colleges and learning and skills providers in England. Ofsted predominantly have four categories that they look for within an educational setting: quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management.
Inspects, Regulates & Reports
The inspections help to raise standards and help education and social care settings recover and improve where necessary. Regulations advances high quality care, education and safeguarding for children.
It is Ofsted’s priority to give each child the best start in life. They do this by developing the evidence base about early years education, including curriculum and pedagogy and act on it.
Keeping children safe and promoting children’s safety and welfare is at the forefront of everything they do.
