One such change is to replace "satisfactory" rating with the term "requires improvement", to incentivise pre-schools to keep up with standards already expected of schools and colleges. With these "requiring improvement" nurseries and pre-schools, OFSTED is also proposing to increase the frequency of inspections, and even imposing a maximum 4 years to get to "good". Failing this, OFSTED proposes they be judged "inadequate" and - if repeatedly judged so - steps be taken to cancel the setting's registration.
What do you think of these proposals? Would you be more confident in the inspections process if OFSTED made these changes to nursery and pre-schools? If not, what other considerations would influence your choice of and confidence in a nursery/pre-school?
