       Ofsted visited in March 2019 and gave a grading of Good. Below is a quote from our latest Ofsted Report:

  • The quality of teaching is consistently strong. Staff enthuse and motivate children. They ask questions and respond well to children's suggestions and ideas. 

  • Staff know children well. They regularly assess what children know and can do and build up an accurate understanding of their capabilities. This helps staff to plan enjoyable and challenging experiences to promote children's good progress.

  • Children develop close emotional attachments with staff, confidently seeking them out to share in their play. Children's good behaviour and individual efforts are given meaningful praise, supporting their self-esteem and confidence.
