You can view our latest Ofsted inspection report and all the lovely comments, online here.

Some comments we are particularly proud of include:

  • There are good partnerships with parents. Effective communication enables parents and staff to share and gain information about the children. Staff provide ways that parents can extend their children’s learning at home. Parents talk positively about their children’s experiences and the links they have with their child’s key person.
  • Staff provides a calm, welcoming and exciting play space for children. The learning environment has been carefully thought through, and children benefit from the home-from-home feel. Staff greet children warmly at the start of each session. Children enter enthusiastically and engage in play and learning immediately.
  • There is a well-thought-out curriculum that is designed to successfully prepare children for future learning, including moving on to school. Staff provide good opportunities for children to be independent, confident, resilient, and social, enabling children to develop positive relationships with others. For example, at lunchtime, children chatter happily as they peel their fruit and sing songs. When they need help, they are confident to ask, but always have a go first. Children help to look after their own needs and show pride in their achievements.
