Welcome to the #OfstedBigConversation

The Ofsted Big Conversation brought together representatives of Early Years Childcare Providers and Ofsted across the UK. It is a voluntary organisation run by sector representatives and the purpose within the Terms of Reference are:

  • To provide a communication forum where providers*, who deliver Early Years care and education, can collectively bring shared areas of concern or common themes they seek further clarification on, to a representative from Ofsted, and receive a timely response.
  • To provide Ofsted an opportunity to give updates on changes and direction of travel and to help dispel Ofsted ‘myths’.

*Providers delivering Early Years care and education, include but are not limited to private, voluntary and independent settings such as day nurseries, pre-schools, childminders and Children’s Centres (collectively called ‘PVI’)”
