Here are some comments from our most recent OFSTED reports across our nurseries…
- Experienced and qualified staff are skilled in supporting children who have special Educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. They work in partnership with a range of professionals to carefully plan for children’s further progress.
- Staff have good working relationships with parents and carers.
- Staff support children’s communication and language skills well, including those who speak English as an additional language.
- Children run to staff as they arrive at nursery. They show how they have developed close bonds with their key person and feel safe in their care.
- Children are happy and show curiosity to explore and play. They make good progress in their learning, overall and are well prepared for future education.
- Staff and parents share important information regularly, which leads to children’s individual needs being met effectively. Parents comment positively on their children’s learning and the attention they receive from caring staff.
- Staff provide stimulating learning environments for children, both indoors and outdoors, this motivates children to learn.
- The management team have a very clear vision for the nursery. It focuses on providing high-quality care and fully supporting the unique needs of all children and their families.
- Children are extremely happy and confident at nursery. They display superb manners, are kind to each other and behave incredibly well. Staff are excellent role models for children and support them exceedingly well to develop resilience and a deep sense of belonging. Children form extremely strong emotional relationships with staff.
- Parents speak highly of the nursery and are very happy with the quality of care that staff provide.
- Parents speak very highly of the care their children receive. Staff regularly provide parents with information about their child’s care and learning. They share information regarding what their children have been doing and what they need to learn next. This helps to provide continuity of care between the nursery and the parents.
- Children enjoy outdoor play and fresh air. They have superb opportunities to develop their physical skills in the garden areas. Children recognise, value and respect each other’s differences. This helps children with SEND to be fully included and supported. Consequently, children develop positive relationships with each other.
