Christopher Stacey LL.B, LL.M

Dear Office for Standards in Education,

For each of the last 5 years (or for when figures are available), I would like to know:

1. The number of individuals providing childcare covered by the Childcare (Disqualification) Regulations 2009 that have been regarded as 'disqualified' due to a caution or conviction that they have disclosed regarding themselves.

2. The number of individuals covered in (1) that were granted a waiver.

3. The number of individuals providing childcare covered by the Childcare (Disqualification) Regulations 2009 that have been regarded as 'disqualified by disqualification' due to a caution or conviction that they have disclosed regarding somebody in their household.

4. The number of individuals covered in (3) that were granted a waiver.

5. The average time it takes for Ofsted to process a waiver application.

6. I would also like to obtain copies of any user-friendly lists that you have which cover the criminal offences that are covered by these regulations.

Yours faithfully,

Christopher Stacey LL.B, LL.M

Sally Telford, Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills

Dear Mr Stacey

 

I refer to our recent telephone conversations with you about your request
for information.

 

As discussed, to answer points 1 to 5 of your request for information
would take a considerable amount of time and a manual search of a large
number of records to extract the information requested, which would be
likely to exceed the limit set out in Fees Regulations and section 12 of
the FOI Act.

 

You have therefore altered your request, withdrawing questions 1 to 5 and
asking instead for the number of waiver cases Ofsted has received in the
last five years and an explanation in relation to timescales. The original
‘question 6’ remains part of your request.

 

As your request was revised on 6 February 2015, the new deadline for
Ofsted to respond is 6 March 2015. I anticipate, however, being able to
respond to you prior to this date and will contact you again shortly.

 

Regards

Karon
