Ofsted Registrations

It has come to the attention of SfYC that Ofsted is cancelling registrations with no notice when a setting has overlooked payment of their annual registration fee. This has enormous consequences for settings and their staff and, of course, the families that use your service. Ofsted will not re-instate registration and require the submission of a new application which takes time to process and could ultimately result in a break of service delivery. Could we therefore urge you to check that your annual registration fee has been paid and regular payments (by standing order if necessary) are made within timescales? If you are a committee run setting, please check with the committee chair/treasurer that he/she knows when payment is due and the importance of it being made on time. It is also important that Ofsted is informed of any changes to your main contact for the setting so that any communication does not go astray.
