- Back to: Outstanding providers
The outstanding providers listed include childminders, day-care providers, schools, pupil referral units, colleges and providers of work-based learning and adult education. Most were inspected between 1 September 2006 and 31 July 2007.
The schools and colleges are those judged outstanding for overall effectiveness. The childminders and day-care providers are those judged to provide outstanding care. If they also offered early education, this was also outstanding. The work-based learning and adult education providers are those judged outstanding.
More than 40 children's homes were also inspected and judged outstanding but are not listed to protect their identities.
The proportions of providers inspected in each local authority area vary from year to year, and providers inspected do not necessarily represent the local authority as a whole.
