Compliance Notices

Compliance Notices are at the lower end of Ofsted enforcement activity but can be precursors to more severe enforcement action. They are issued when Ofsted believes that a registered person is failing or has failed to comply with a legal requirement imposed on them (e.g. failure to comply with the relevant regulations).  

Ofsted will provide a date by which it expects a provider to comply with the notice and failure to do so can result in a provider being prosecuted.  Failure to comply with a Compliance Notice is a specific ground upon which Ofsted can cancel a provider’s registration.

Ofsted state that there is no right to appeal a Compliance Notice but Ridouts has been successful in having Compliance Notices withdrawn.
