Comments from our recent Ofsted Report

Our Ofsted inspection was carried out in March 2016, here are some of the comments from the report:
‘Staff are sensitive to children’s emotional needs and help them feel secure and settled when they start in the setting.’
‘Children form strong attachments with staff, quickly developing confidence and self-belief.’
‘Children form a strong sense of belonging and are well supported to develop independence.’
‘Partnerships with other professionals are highly effective. There are excellent systems for sharing information about disabled children, those with special educational needs, and those who speak English as an additional language.’
‘Children’s individual needs are planned for by their key person, who knows them very well.’
‘Managers and staff are passionate and committed to providing high quality care and learning.’
