About us

Annual Report

Ofsted is supporting improvement and raising standards for every child and every learner – particularly those in the most disadvantaged areas. Our annual reports – covering each of the remits we inspect – aim to provide a useful contribution to the continuing debate on making this a reality.

Early Years Annual Report 2012/13

The Ofsted Early Years Annual Report 2012/13 was published on 3 April 2014.

It represents a departure for Ofsted – the first time we have published our annual review of the sector separately from the other sectors we inspect. This gives an opportunity to shine a light on pressing issues facing this particular sector and to make a contribution to raising the prestige and profile of the important work done by practitioners in early years.
