Help with quick search

To find an inspection report, enter the name of the provider - for example 'Westminster City School' - into the search box and press search. If you know the Unique Reference Number (URN) - for example '101153' - you can search using that. You can also search using any part of the provider's address, such as the first part of its postcode - 'NW1'. For their security, we don't publish addresses for children's homes, childminders, home childcarers or childcare on domestic premises. Please search by their URN only.

The search results will give a link to the page of the provider along with details of its inspection reports. For detailed descriptions of providers and information on what to do if you can't find an inspection report, click the blue help box within the relevant provider section.

If you don't find what you're looking for, more search options are available in the sections on the right.
