Dear Office for Standards in Education,

Please provide copies of any current guidance used by Ofsted and it's inspectors to inform the assessments carried out by it when visiting nurseries and primary schools.

In particular, I would like to obtain any guidance that you use that would set out a list of offences that would prevent a nursery or primary school from employing an individual with a caution or conviction for an offence on that list.

Also, please provide any other current guidance that is used in relation to criminal record checks and the decisions that can be made by nurseries and primary schools in terms of making recruitment decisions on the basis of individuals with criminal records.

Yours faithfully,

Christopher Stacey LL.B, LL.M

Paul Nation, Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills
