High-quality early education is the focus of Ofsted's revised inspection framework

04 Nov 2013

From today early years providers are subject to a tougher early years inspection framework, which makes clear that only provision that is good or outstanding is good enough for young children.

Inspectors will use the revised framework to inspect all early years providers and make sure they are delivering a high quality service. The Ofsted rating of satisfactory is replaced with requires improvement to make it clear that anything less than good is not good enough for young children. The revised inspection framework details what an early years provider has to do to be rated outstanding or good.
