Ofsted has today published a consultation setting out plans to introduce separate inspection judgements for early years settings on a school site.
The proposed changes, due to come into effect from September 2014, are designed to ensure inspectors place as much emphasis on this important stage of children’s education as on the quality of provision for 5 to 16 year-olds.
Ofsted wants to hear from schools, parents and other parties about whether they think the plans will provide a more rounded view of those academies and local authority maintained schools that provide early years education.
