FOI Request - Allegations Against Employees of Nurseries
I understand that local authorities have to be notified at the same time as the education regulator OFSTED where there is a serious allegation against an employee of a nursery. The Local Authority Designated Officer is notified.
Please could you supply the following information:
1. How many referrals have been made to your local authority in relation to allegations against an employee of a nursery? That would cover all nurseries including those which are connected to schools.
2. Please supply the last two years worth of figures broken down by year.
We received one referral in 2016.
