Details

This page includes:

  • data published fortnightly on the number of registered early years and childcare providers reporting one or more confirmed cases of COVID-19 by week – this will run until December 2021, subject to review
  • a one-off dataset that breaks down the number of notifications by region and local authority for each quarter between 1 July 2020 and 30 September 2021

About the data

Early years and childcare providers must notify Ofsted of any serious illness or accident to a child in their care. This includes a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the setting.

Providers must notify Ofsted as soon as reasonably practical, and in any case within 14 days of the incident occurring. Notifications received in one week could represent confirmed cases which occurred during the 2 previous weeks.

If there are multiple reported cases at a setting at one time, a notification can include more than one confirmed case. This means that the number of notifications received does not necessarily correlate with the number of confirmed cases in a setting.

The data is accurate at the time of publication and may be updated at a later date if we receive delayed information.

Providers must follow guidance from Public Health England (PHE) about what to do in the event of a reported case of COVID-19 in a setting.

You can find numbers of childcare providers in Ofsted’s early years and childcare providers official statistics.
