Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. Ofsted inspects and regulates services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
ISI - Some early years settings are inspected by ISI [(ndependent Schools Inspectorate) - they inspect and monitor the educational, boarding care and early years provision of association independent schools against standards set by the government. ISI are separate to Ofsted, but will also use the EYFS as the benchmark by which to evaluate early year’s provision.
Most settings in Harrow are currently inspected under the Common Inspection Framework.
