'Nappy curriculum' is leaving a nasty smell

18th February 2011 at 00:00

I would like to clarify figures mentioned in your article about Ofsted's report on the introduction of the EYFS. You reported that, due to the introduction of the framework, the number of childcare providers receiving "outstanding" verdicts had increased from 59 per cent to 68 per cent.

The report actually said the increase from 59 per cent to 68 per cent relates to "good and outstanding" providers.
