Parents Guide To Understanding An Ofsted Report

Read More http://www.look4nurseries.co.uk/

Ofsted Reports can be quite confusing to a parent who is researching for information on a setting to send their child, so we have put together an easy step by step guide as to what is published on the reports and the reasons as to why.

Who are Ofsted?

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. Ofsted inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

What is an Ofsted Report ?

An Ofsted Report is information about an inspection carried out unannounced to a setting. Every setting will have one main inspection every few years although this may be more frequent if the setting requires improvement or has received a complaint.

Playing

Inspections are carried out by one or more inspectors and each inspection is based around the national standards, set out by the government to ensure they are met by all providers.

The national standards outline the quality below which no provider may fall. However, they are also intended to recognise and support a continuous improvement in quality in all settings.

Returning Back To Work After Maternity Leave

Read More http://www.look4nurseries.co.uk/

Whether it is part time or full time, returning back to work from maternity leave can somewhat feel very daunting for any mum. Getting yourself back into the swing of things is a huge leap from the relaxed and spontaneous routine you have become accustomed to, so we have a step by step guide of how to get you from baby brain to work again!



Step One – Your Return

You must give your employer eight weeks’ notice if you want to return to work earlier or later than your agreed date.
Be aware that it will typically take around 14 weeks’ from your request for flexible working to implementing new arrangements, assuming your employer agrees.

When returning after having a baby, you have the right to go back to the same job on the same terms and conditions as before you went on maternity leave. But with these rights come responsibilities, such as giving your employer plenty of notice if you plan to go back early or want to ask for flexible working arrangements.

Whilst on maternity leave, your employer should keep you informed of any issues which may affect you. For example, you should be informed of any relevant promotion opportunities or job vacancies that arise during your maternity leave.

What to do if you think your employer isn’t being fair?

Talk to them first – it’s possible they just don’t know the rules. If this doesn’t work, you may need to make a complaint using your employer’s grievance procedure. Then, if you’re still not happy, contact your trade union if you have one or speak to a specialist at Acas.

When Is The Right Time To Introduce Your Child To Nursery School




http://www.look4nurseries.co.uk/

There is definitely no perfect moment to put your child into childcare. It very much depends on your working needs and your family schedule. Your child’s age, personality and the extent of their experiences of spending time apart from you, can also affect your decision. However there are some guidelines as to what can affect your child when starting Nursery School

Readiness for Nursery School based on Age

Although there is no exact science in defining the appropriate age for Nursery School, there are some pieces of information that can help you to make an informed decision as to when it is best for your child that you enrol them:

Newborns to 18 Months of Age

Babies up to the age of 18 months are not usually too worried about who takes care of them, as long as their needs are met. However, they may develop separation anxiety as of 8 to 12 months of age and may take time to trust new carers, so it is possible that they will find going into childcare difficult at first. As long as you can find an effective Nursery School that provides several members of staff for a low ration of children in this age group, your baby is more likely to be happy.
