This is a summary, for parents and carers, of our 2015 Ofsted Report – where we achieved an Outstanding inspection in all areas:
The nursery benefits from an extremely strong management team – who are forward thinking and inspirational. They lead a group of staff who are enthusiastic and dedicated to providing high-quality learning experiences for children.
Children are exceptionally well settled and are forming positive relationships with staff and their peers.
Children’s care and well-being are supported by comprehensive settling-in periods before they start, which are exclusively geared to each family’s individual needs.
Staff are extremely resourceful, with the continual progression and organisation of the premises and in the way in which they resource the equipment.
Staff regularly reflect on the layout of rooms, involving the children in any re-organising processes.
Children are able to construct using a wide range of materials selected by themselves. Staff have displayed pictures of local buildings, such as the Police station, Hospital and Church, for the children to copy.
The nursery is totally child-orientated, providing a warm, welcoming family environment in which children thrive.
Every room is decorated to make a stimulating learning environment for the children.
Children are exceptionally well safeguarded. Staff are fully aware of procedures to follow should they suspect a child is at risk of harm or abuse.
Partnerships with parents are very strong – they are fully involved in their child’s learning.
Excellent information is shared with parents to encourage and support children’s learning at home.
