Ofsted Reports
We were delighted to receive a ‘Good’ rating in our latest inspection in 2019. In 2015 and 2010 we were awarded ‘Outstanding’, but since the introduction of Ofsted’s new framework no setting had received or maintained an ‘Outstanding’, so we are all very pleased with this result. As you will see from the report below, there were lots of really positive things identified, particularly how the staff provide a warm and welcoming setting and form very strong relationships with the children; that they provide a varied and engaging range of activities; and that there is good communication with parents, carers and other agencies.
