Right at the end of last term the OFSTED inspector arrived. Eventually the report was published and we were delighted that our contribution to children’s well-being was rated as ‘outstanding’.
The overall judgment of the nursery school was ‘good’. Realistically, ‘good’ covers rather a wide range of assessment, and the report itself which can be read online is a bland document which for the most part uses expressions that sound like generic descriptors selected from a database. Nevertheless, it was gratifying to read lines such as ‘Children show heart-warming empathy towards others… Staff model exceptional behaviour and manners, meaning children behave extremely well. Staff provide children with imaginative opportunities which motivate them to learn.’
