Ofsted visited in February 2016 and gave us a 2. 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 learn to be independent in their self-care skills. They are enthusiastic as they help prepare snack and confidently get themselves dressed for going outside.

  • Children make good progress in their learning given their starting points. Children who have special educational needs are targeted with appropriate interventions to help them achieve to their full potential. (Ofsted Report 2016)
