The nursery received its inspection on October 31st and was rated as ‘Good’ in three out of four areas of inspection: Effectiveness of the leadership and management; Quality of teaching, learning and assessment; Outcomes for children. It also received an ‘Outstanding’ for Personal development, behaviour and welfare.

Inspection activities included the inspector observing interactions with children and staff and assessing the impact this had on children’s learning. Comments from the report included:

  • Staff establish positive relationships with parents and keep them fully involved and informed. For example, they regularly share healthy eating recipes with them.
  • Children develop good communication skills. For example, older children answer challenging questions with confidence and babies are fascinated by staff interactions.
  • The manager and staff work effectively as a team to evaluate their current practice. For example, they observe each other interacting with children. They provide each other with constructive advice and use it to support their action plans.  

“We are pleased that the development of the children’s communication skills at our nursery has been recognised in this positive Ofsted report,” said Nursery Manager Gill Knight. “We will continue to strive for excellence and make further improvements as we moved forward.”
