The early years sector has always been one of change, development and transformation and rightly so. But never before have early years leaders had to deal with so much guidance and updates. It’s a good job we love what we do! In their latest guidance, Ofsted have confirmed that routine inspections for registered early years provision in England will restart from January 2021. There will be a phased return to inspection, starting with an interim period of visits during the autumn term. By this time, it is expected that the EYFS will be in fully back in place and previous disapplications will no longer applicable. The timing of routine inspections resuming will continue to be kept under review and adapted as and when required.
