Our last Ofsted inspection was 6th November 2019. Here are some quotes from our report. We are continually evaluating and reflecting on our practice to achieve the best possible standards.

‘Staff are advocates for ensuring children can explore the wider world. They provide outings in the community and take children to the unused railway tracks for 'listening walks'. A further example of this is a regular visit to the local community centre. Children benefit greatly from use of the facilities and particularly enjoy meeting up with the residents.’

‘Children confidently explore this vibrant and stimulating playgroup. They explore items which are reflective of their home environments. For example, role-play areas are equipped with real foods and crockery made from porcelain, wood and metal. Girls use these delicate resources with care and precision, during lively and animated pretend play. Children are enthusiastic learners who relish new challenges.’

'Leaders have high expectations of children and, overall, plan activities based on children's next steps in learning. For example, they look at x-rays of bones in a small hand and an older child's hand, to show children how activities such as 'finger gym' are helping their bones develop, ready for writing. Children acquire the necessary skills for future learning and school.'

'Mathematical development is given high priority. Assessments and observations evidenced that this area was not as well promoted as other aspects of the curriculum. Therefore, leaders and staff introduced opportunities for mathematics in all areas. This had a very positive impact, and children make good progress and enjoy this aspect of learning.'

‘Dedicated leaders and staff strive to make ongoing improvements that benefit children and families. They actively seek out ways to continue to improve the service that they provide.’

‘Partnership with external professionals is excellent. This helps to ensure consistency in supporting care and learning for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. Staff are highly skilled and well trained in supporting and including all children.’
