Ofsted Report 2016: this provision is good 

Comments from our latest Ofsted report include:

Teaching is consistently strong, with some outstanding elements. Staff use their in-depth knowledge of children to plan purposeful activities that help them gain skills in readiness for future learning.

Staff have created a welcoming and friendly environment. Children have strong bonds with staff and are clearly happy and settled.


All childcare and services should make reasonable adjustments to support disabled children and young people or those with additional needs. We believe in an inclusive practice and levels of experience of supporting different needs and our Setting Manager, Ruth Marsh, has worked with children with a variety of additional needs in previous roles over the last 10 years.

Our most recent Ofsted inspection in 2016 also identified this:

Staff use precise observation and assessment to plan for children’s ongoing learning. They gather information from parents about what their children can already do and know, and use this to inform their planning. The manager uses meticulous tracking systems to monitor the progress of different groups of children. She carefully scrutinises the data and uses her findings to plan timely interventions and to plan timely interventions and close ay gaps in children’s learning.
