Ofsted Report July 2016

We had our most recent Ofsted Inspection in July 2016 and are very pleased to say that we have been given a ‘GOOD’ rating.

Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good because:

  • The pre-school manager, the management committee and staff have worked hard since the last inspection to make the necessary improvements. As a result, all legal requirements are now met.
  • The leadership and management of the setting has improved. The manager is fully supported by a strong committee and better provision has been put in place for staff training and development. The quality of teaching is now good.
  • Children are very happy in the pre-school. They form very close relationships with the staff and greet them excitedly when they arrive each day. From the youngest age, children settle quickly and enjoy good support from their key person.
  • Children make good progress in their learning and development. Staff work closely with parents when children first join the pre-school to identify what children know and can do. This provides staff with a good understanding of children’s abilities and helps them to accurately measure their progress.

It is not yet outstanding because:

  • Although staff review their practice, this is not yet robust enough to help them deliver an outstanding level of provision.
  • Information about the progress children make is not yet effectively used to show how quickly gaps in learning are closing.

To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should:

  • Utilise all opportunities for monitoring the quality of the provision to improve standards to an outstanding level
  • Make full use of assessment information to demonstrate how any gaps in different groups of children’s learning are closing at a rapid pace.


We are very pleased with our Ofsted report and have taken steps to further improve our provision.

Staff have now been on further training courses to enable them to use all opportunities for monitoring the quality of the provision.  Staff make full use of assessment information and are now narrowing the gaps in children’s learning.
