Well, this came out of the blue... as I thought I'd have to wait till the dates in September rolled up for me to register...
I got a call from the inspector from Ofsted a few days ago, saying that she had brought my case before the regional Ofsted head, and the head had decided they would make an exception in my case, and grant me an early registration!
I am amazed!!!
And what was popped through the post box today??? My registration certificate! Woohoooooooooooo
