For all early years providers.
We would like to remind all early years education and childcare providers that if you have a confirmed case of COVID-19 in setting, whether a child or staff member, or you're affected by a COVID related setting closure, you MUST continue to notify Ofsted (or your childminding agency, if applicable).
This is a legal requirement as set out in paragraph 3.52 of the early years foundation stage statutory framework.
Please report as soon as you are able to, and in any case within 14 days. See ‘tell Ofsted if you have a COVID-19 incident at your childcare business’ to ensure that all the required information is included in your notifications.
