Ofsted inspection

Our latest OFSTED inspection was 7th June 2017 and in the published report we achieved a "Good" rating which was a great achievement and one we are all extremely proud of. The overall report summary, as written by the OFSTED inspector, reads as follows:

The quality and standards of the early years provision during this inspection is: Good

Summary of key findings for parents

  • The staff talk with parents before children start at the setting. This helps them to find out about the children's interests and abilities. As a result, staff plan learning opportunities which build securely on the children's existing skills. This supports children to make good progress towards the early learning goals.
  • Partnerships with parents and carers are successful and ensure children receive the support they need. Staff provide ongoing information to parents and carers, which help to support ideas for shared home learning.
  • All staff have a good understanding of the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. They have a secure understanding about safeguarding and child protection procedures. This ensures that children in their care remain protected from harm.
  • The two managers and staff are attentive to the changing needs of the children and their families. They take time to listen to parents and to the interests of the children. They use this information very well to reflect on and improve the service provided.
