A. We supply the art work and design guidance to outstanding providers when we publish the list of outstanding providers with our annual report, usually in October of every year. So, for a provider judged outstanding between September 2006 and August 2007, it would be supplied in October 2007.
We know that there is considerable interest amongst outstanding providers in being able to use the logo as soon as the judgement is awarded, and we are looking at how we can do this. If there is a change we will write to providers judged outstanding during 2006/07, and supply the logo and guidance, as quickly as we can.
A. If you are judged Oustanding in an inspection in most cases you will be able to use the Outstanding provider logo, however some special criteria may apply, for example if your organisation provides multiple settings, or you have more than one inspection.
If you are eligible to use the Outstanding provider logo it will be sent out automatically.
A. The logo shows the year it was issued and can be used until the next inspection. However, if you are re-inspected and do not receive an outstanding judgement, we ask you to stop using the logo.
