Probe after nursery girl 'attacked'
A three-year-old girl was allegedly attacked by another pupil at a pre-school nursery.
Katie Ann Guttridge was injured after another girl, aged two, was said to have attacked her at Ratby Pre-School Nursery on Church Lane in Ratby, Leicester.
The girl's parents reported the incident to Leicestershire Police and were advised to contact their local authority and Ofsted.
The education watchdog has now launched an investigation into whether the provider is meeting the "legal requirements of registration" following the incident, it said.
Jill Bottrill, manager of the nursery, said: "We are working closely with the local authority and parents and the pre-school."
A spokeswoman for Leicestershire Police said: "The parents came into the police station on December 13 and said their three-year-old daughter had been injured at a nursery by a two-year-old child.
"But as the girl is below the age of criminal responsibility there is nothing further the police can do.
"We suggested the parents make a complaint to the nursery and to their local authority."
Meanwhile, Leicestershire County Council said it had offered support to both the school and the parents following reports of an incident involving two children.
A spokesman for Ofsted said: "Ofsted is aware of the case and is conducting its own investigation to see whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements of registration. Ratby pre-school will remain open while we conduct our investigation."
