Our most recent Ofsted inspection was on 5th February 2018 and we were judged as “good” in all areas.  Here are some of the highlights:

  • Parents speak very highly about the pre-school and the attention that the staff provide to their children. They say that their children’s social skills and understanding of right from wrong have increased since coming to the setting. Parents feel very involved in their children’s learning and staff keep them well informed about their progress.
  • Children have strong bonds with the warm and caring staff, who are very attentive to their needs and know them well. Children arrive happily and settle quickly to play with items of their own choice. They enjoy choosing to play indoors or outside in the well-resourced garden.
  • All children are well prepared for their future learning, including their eventual move on to school. They play well together and have good social skills.
  • Staff know children well and provide activities that they know will interest them. For example, children have fun making items which link to a popular story. They safely use a range of tools when they choose to make ‘binoculars’ from recycled materials. Staff model conversations and help children to discuss what wildlife they might see when using these, and they introduce new words. This helps to extend children’s vocabulary. Good-quality teaching helps children to successfully recall the sequence of the story.
