Letter from Maurice Smith, dated 15 June 2006:

Your recent parliamentary question has been referred to me, as Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of schools, for reply.

You asked when Ofsted will publish the July 2005 inspection report on St. Mark’s Pre-School in Salisbury (Ofsted reference 146011) on their website.

In response, the report will be published on Tuesday 20 June 2006. The delay in publication occurred due to administrative and computer system errors which resulted in the failure to publish the report on the website at the correct time. Despite this, a copy of the report was sent to the nursery.

Now that the matter has been brought to our attention, we are working to fix these system errors and will remedy the situation. Ofsted would like to apologise most profusely for the delay.

A copy of this reply has been sent to Jim Knight and will be placed in the library of both Houses.
