This document explains what Ofsted does when a childcare provider does not comply with set regulations.

The handbook is broken down into 4 parts:

  • Part 1. Ofsted’s compliance and enforcement work – an
    overview of policies and thresholds
  • Part 2. Ofsted's approach to compliance and enforcement
  • Part 3. Types of enforcement action
  • Part 4. Other compliance and enforcement issues:
    making referrals to the Disclosure and Barring Service

 *Updates made:

  • Updated policy about hearing objections and risk assessment thresholds
  • Removed surveillance section - this will be published separately
  • Removed table of disqualifiable offences, as this is published by the Department for Education
  • Removed references to pocket notebooks as inspectors now choose the most appropriate way to record evidence.
