Ofsted Comments (April 2016)

Some comments from Ofsted April 2016

The provision and learning in the Nursery are particularly strong. The staff there have considerable expertise and experience. One of the things they do especially well is to use immediate events to draw out children’s learning.”

“Children in early years are carefully and accurately assessed by adults. These assessments are well used to plan appropriate activities across all the different areas of learning. Staff also take account in planning of the children’s interests.”

“The indoor and outdoor areas are well organised and stimulating.”

“Children behave well. They are happy and keen to talk about what they are learning and exploring. They show concern for each other. They learn to concentrate well on their tasks.”

“There is a particularly strong partnership with parents and carers. Parents contribute profitably to the assessments of their children. Home learning books are widely and helpfully used. Regular ‘stay and play’ sessions are held”

Children attending the Nursery have access to an exciting environment, both inside and outside, which gives children a good start in Foundation Stage.

We have 2 pets in Nursery, Henny and Penny our chickens.

One parent said ‘it’s great having the chickens it makes it just like a family garden’
