Our Pre-School is delighted to have been rated as “Outstanding” in all sections of their Ofsted inspection which took place on 15th September 2014.
Ofsted reported: “Staff have an excellent understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage and they support children’s learning and development exceedingly well.”
“The quality of teaching is extremely robust and consistent throughout the pre-school.”
Commenting on the teamwork of staff the report stated “They [staff] receive excellent support from each other and the management team…”
As with most pre-school inspections, the inspector visited with no notice given. The inspection looked at the following areas:
- How well the setting meets the needs of the range of children;
- The contribution of the early years provision to the well-being of children; and
- The effectiveness of leadership and management of the early years provision.
The Outstanding judgement is given only when the provision is highly effective in meeting the needs of all children exceptionally well, ensuring children are very well prepared for the next stage of their learning.
Alhamdulillah we have been rated as Outstanding in all three areas.
Regarding the well-being of children the Ofsted inspector states:
“Children’s safety and well-being is of paramount importance to the management and staff. Staff follow exceptionally robust and clear risk assessment procedures twice a day to ensure the pre-school is safe….”
The excellent report is recognition of the hard work the management, staff, pupils and parents have put in to make the establishment a success. We are very pleased with the report which reflects what we do every day. It is a testament to the work of the staff that the report has noted that “All children achieve outstanding progress, because staff use their secure understanding of individual children’s needs to provide stimulating and imaginative resources and activities to enhance their learning.”
