Ofsted

Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, is the body which inspects and regulates organisations that educate and care for children in England. You can find our recent Ofsted report by clicking here or you can ask to see a copy at playgroup.

We have again been awarded a strong and consistent ‘Good‘ score for all elements of our setting. The report states:

Well-qualified and knowledgeable staff provide a broad range of interesting activities and resources, so that children have good opportunities to make their own choices in play. As a result, children develop good levels of confidence and make good progress across the seven areas of learning.

The manager and staff team carry out regular observations and assessments on the children to help identify where they are in their learning. This supports children to make good progress in their learning, in preparation for school.

The pre-school values the roles of parents and has effective partnerships in place with other professionals. This ensures children benefit from a consistent approach to their care and learning.

Children who speak English as an additional language are particularly well supported through appropriate intervention and support.

Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions about our playgroup.
