The Nursery is proud to be rated Outstanding by Ofsted. The latest inspection highlighted a number of areas in which it excelled:
Leadership and management are inspirational. The highly qualified and experienced managers provide highly efficient direction to the staff. They regularly observe the quality of teaching, and provide accurate and purposeful feedback to staff, which helps staff to consistently improve their teaching skills and practice.
Staff make precise and focused assessments of children’s learning. They use highly effective teaching methods and provide innovative and exciting learning experiences so that children make rapid progress in all areas of learning.
Staff develop exceptionally strong bonds with the children and are highly effective at nurturing children’s excellent behaviour. Children of all ages play extremely well together, demonstrate highly advanced social skills and are kind and considerate of the feelings of others.
The strong focus on helping children to acquire excellent communication and language skills means that children are excellent communicators and exceptionally confident. They are extremely well prepared for the next stage in their learning and school.
Partnerships with parents are highly effective. Staff successfully engage parents in their children’s learning, including working with them to assess their children’s starting points and plan next steps. This shared approach highly contributes to meeting children’s needs and promoting positive outcomes.
Having my children at The Nursery allows me to get on with my job knowing that my children are happy and having a brilliant time. The staff are so caring and attention – it’s brilliant to be able to go to work and not worry about them at all. The team have been so supportive for our family – they’ve accommodated me visiting the nursery in my lunchbreak to continue breastfeeding my daughter and have made me feel so welcome and comfortable while doing it. We couldn’t be happier!
