Joint statement between CIW and Estyn in relation to non-maintained childcare settings

Suspension of joint Care Inspectorate Wales/Estyn inspections.

We issued a joint statement at the end of the summer term, outlining that we would not carry out joint inspections in the autumn term. We indicated that we would review the situation during the autumn term

Together, CIW and Estyn have decided that the current suspension of joint inspections will continue until at least 31 March 2021. We will review the situation again in the spring and consider the options for restarting the joint inspection programme in the future. We aim to give the sector at least 6 weeks’ notice before resuming routine joint inspections.

We hope that you, your children, staff and community stay safe and well.
