See the thread titled Are You A Ofsted Nanny. MrAnchovy posted a link to a useful version of a document (date around early Aug).

I don't think you need ANY policies as a nanny has a Contract of Employment rather than providing a service.

OFSTED are confused too. Ultimately it will depend on the inspector you get whether they want to see things in writing.

You definitely need to know the safeguarding procedures and you may be told to write it down.

Similarly you don't need to have a policy about medication and accidents but you need to have consent forms for medication (your insurance probably insist anyway) and be able to say/show that you would record any accidents.

You definitely don't need written observations and planning though.
