Our last OFSTED inspection was on 11 November 2016 and we are very pleased that we achieved OUTSTANDING! Our staff worked really hard towards this from our last OFSTED rating as Good back in 2012.
The report states that 'all children thrive in this stimulating and wholly inclusive environment. They make rapid progress from when they first start at the nursery. Children develop excellent independence, self-esteem and emotional well-being as they move freely, both inside and outside. They are very familiar with, and extremely comfortable in, their surroundings. Children are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage in their learning'. Please see the link below for the full report.
Since 2016 our staff have been receiving additional training to ensure our outstanding standards remain in place. We also work closely with the Quality Assurance Framework to ensure we deliver quality services and we have achieved a Gold Award in quality assurance from our local authority. Our staff are trained and qualified and receive continuous professional development. We have staff speaking various languages to support children with English as a second language. This includes Urdu, Hindi, Arabic, Somalian, Gujrati, Kurdish, Punjabi and French. We also have staff trained in BSL.
Since the beginning of the pandemic we have remained opened to provide childcare services as authorised by the government. We update our risk assessment on a regular basis and ensure that all employees have clear understanding about infection control.
