Do you work in an Ofsted-registered early years setting? We want to hear from you.

From September 2019, Ofsted will change the way it inspects schools, colleges, further education institutions and early years settings in England when the common inspection framework (CIF) is replaced by the education inspection framework (EIF).

Ofsted has published a draft EIF, along with a draft early years inspection handbook. It is now consulting on these proposed changes until 5th April 2019.

To find out more about the proposals, read PACEY’s guide.

We want to know what you think, and what support you might need. Please take a few minutes to complete the brief survey below.
