Nursery

All our staff are trained in childcare and/or play and further their knowledge and understanding of early years and play through continual professional development.  All staff and students are CRB checked.

We believe that every child is an individual and are committed to ensuring that their cultural and social requirements are encouraged and supported in every way possible. We maintain an absolute commitment to equality of opportunity and access to services.

In July 2019 the Nursery was inspected by Ofsted and received a judgement of Good for all four aspects, namely:

  • effectiveness of the leadership and management
  • quality of teaching, learning and assessment
  • personal development, behaviour and welfare
  • outcomes for children

Comments in the report included:

“Children are happy in the welcoming, inviting environment where they feel at home
and make strong relationships with key persons.”

“They [staff] find out about children’s likes and routines so that they can tailor their
approach to the individual needs of each child.”

“Staff work well with parents to provide good levels of continuity for children’s care and
education.
