PAWS workshop in action

As part of the support we offer, we run EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) briefing sessions on a regular basis. These sessions make providers aware of their responsibilities and how to meet the Safeguarding and Welfare requirements within the EYFS framework. We also give support on a one-to-one basis to help providers navigate the online Ofsted registration system and to ensure settings are working to their legal minimum.

Where we are aware providers are experiencing difficulties in meeting their Ofsted requirements, we implement a package of support to resolve problems and improve outcomes at re-inspection.

We also keep an eye on changes to requirements at a National level and report this to providers through our news pages, as well as our social media platforms.
