We think we are fantastic but Ofsted thought so too!

Ofsted January 2019 found Early years to be GOOD

"Adults have built trusting relationships with children and their families. They have established a nurturing atmosphere in which children are well looked after. Staff compliment this with clear routines and high expectations of the children`s behaviour. As a result children cooperate well with each other and their behaviour is good."

"The quality of teaching in the early years is now effective."

"The children make strong progress."

"The early years leaders have identified priorities for  improvement and have acted quickly to address these areas."

"Children find activities on offer enticing, because of this, they remain focused for extended periods of time."

We value your support: Tips and useful information for parents and carers
