'I do not do ‘mocksteds’. You can never recreate an inspection, as so much depends on what happens on the day. However, I do carry out Quality Assurance visits and Early Years Audits.
I use Ofsted’s Early Years Inspection Handbook, the grade descriptors, and the early years foundation stage to make secure judgements based on evidence. During my visits, I identify the setting’s key strengths and areas for improvement. I provide advice and support to help make the necessary improvements. It is not helpful to expect, or want, nurseries to do anything in addition to prepare for inspections. However, I believe that nurseries should be ever ready for inspection and preparation should focus on providing consistently good quality learning, play and care. I can help you to accurately evaluate the setting's strengths and weaknesses; and to develop action plans to address any shortfalls in practice.

If you respond ‘No’ to any of the above, I can help you.
I am a former HMI (Early Years specialist) with over 20 years of inspection experience. I can conduct an Early Years Audit of your setting and help you prioritise your workload.
I will help you make sure you are meeting the EYFS requirements. Failure to meet the requirements set out in the statutory framework could massively affect your Ofsted grade.
