Speaker Spotlight

On 7 September, Dr Mine Conkbayir will host an online event marking one year since Self-regulation was introduced to the EYFS. In the run-up to this unmissable event, we will put the spotlight on some of the featured speakers, starting with a real coup – Wendy Ratcliff, from Osfted.

Wendy Ratcliff is Her Majesty’s Inspector and Principal Officer for Early Education Policy at Ofsted.

Originally qualified as an early years practitioner, Wendy has extensive experience of inspection and regulation across a full range of early years provisions, including schools. Her role as Principal Officer for early education in Ofsted’s education policy team is focused on the inspection of early education curriculum, including through the education inspection framework (EIF) and any changes for the future.

The importance of education recovery for our youngest children and Ofsted’s strategy ‘Best start in life’ will also be explored, followed by a Q&A with Wendy to conclude the event.
