Out of School Alliance - Help and Support for Out of School Clubs

Childcare Register requirements

We have identified all the changes to the requirements for out of school clubs on the Ofsted Childcare Register from 1 September 2014, compared to the previous version of the statutory requirements. These are all tabulated, along with suggestions for how to implement the changes, in our new publication Childcare Register 2014: Key Changes Guide

We have only included requirements that apply to out of school clubs. Each change listed in the Key Changes Guide includes the relevant section numbers in the Ofsted factsheets Childcare Register requirements: childcare providers on non-domestic or domestic premises (2014) and the Requirements for the Childcare Register: childcare providers on non-domestic or domestic premises (2013) so that you can quickly and easily cross-check any changes. 

From 1 September 2014 all out of school clubs will need to ensure that their policies, forms and procedures reflect any changes in the Childcare Register requirements (2014). The Key Changes Guide should make this process much simpler. 

OOSA members can download the Key Changes Guide for free. (You need to log in to access the download link.)
