Childcare and play providers are required to complete a self assessment and an annual review of the quality of care at their service. This information tells us about your service and the system you have for monitoring, reviewing and improving the quality of care given to children and is used to inform our inspection of your service.
SASS will be in two parts and available to complete online:
Part one – annual data collection
If you did not complete and submit SASS part one this may have been recorded against your service(s).
In late spring 2017, you must complete SASS parts one and two using CSSIW Online. (External link)
Part two -includes completing a Quality of Care Review
Part two will not take place until late spring 2017.
You cannot submit your SASS online until late spring 2017, but you now need to start preparing for SASS part two.
