Ofsted Inspection of Children's Services - Children, Schools and Families Committee Contents

Further supplementary memorandum submitted by Ofsted

  I was grateful for the opportunity to appear before Members and give evidence last month. The Committee's scrutiny is a key accountability mechanism for Ofsted, and I welcome the chance to respond to questions and present our view.

  During the proceedings, Annette Brooke asked (in question 167) for information on the total number of people on the voluntary childcare register (VCR). I can now confirm that the total number of childcare providers on the register is 83,914, of which 9,176 are registered solely on the VCR. These data have been extracted from the Regulatory Support Application (RSA) database as it stood at 5 April 2010.
