Our most recent Ofsted inspection in November 2016 found that overall, the quality and standards of the early years provision was GOOD.

This includes:

  • Effectiveness of the leadership and management – GOOD

  • Quality of teaching, learning and assessment – GOOD

  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare – GOOD

  • Outcomes for children – GOOD

Below are some of the highlights from this report –

“Managers and staff know the children very well. They plan a wide range of interesting and stimulating learning opportunities, and all children are engaged and motivated to learn.”
“Managers and staff establish and maintain secure and trusting relationships with children, and set consistent and clear expectations for behaviour.”
“Partnerships with parents and other professionals are strong. Staff incorporate the targets of specialist services into their educational plans and keep parents well informed about children’s successes.”
“Parents speak extremely highly of the support that they and their families receive.”
“Managers carefully monitor and track the progress of all children. Strategies are promptly put in place to narrow any gaps in achievement.”
“Staff make precise assessments of children’s progress to help children achieve their next steps in learning.”
“Children show high levels of emotional well-being and demonstrate that they have secure attachments with their key person. Children are confident and independent in their learning and new children settle quickly.”
“They learn to respect each other as staff sensitively discuss the difference among themselves and other people and cultures in the world.”
“All children develop the skills they need in readiness for the move on to school.”
“Children of all ages develop a love of books, independently and in groups.”
