In May 2015 we were awarded an "OUTSTANDING" rating by Ofsted


A brief overview of the report is below, along with a link to the full report on the Ofsted website


"The quality of teaching is outstanding. Staff have an excellent understanding of the learning and development requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. This means that children flourish and are highly motivated as they engage in a wide range of stimulating activities.


Staff give a high regard to children's safety and welfare. As a result, children demonstrate a remarkable understanding of their own safety.


The key-person system is extremely effective; all children's emotional needs are met very well. Children are confident and behave exceptionally well.


Staff have an exceptional knowledge of their safeguarding responsibilities, and the procedures to follow should they be concerned about a child's welfare.


Children develop their physical skills very well. They use bikes, a trampoline and stepping-stones skilfully. As a result, children develop extremely good balance and coordination. 


The leadership and management of the pre-school is very strong. There are robust self-evaluation procedures that reflect the views of staff, parents and children. Thorough staff supervision and regular training opportunities ensure staff's continuous professional development. This means children benefit from a high quality provision.”









We have clear and simple policies covering a multitude of subjects from Children's rights to staff induction, from administration of medicine to bad weather, everything is covered.  They are reviewed by the management team regularily and signed off by the full committee.  All are then re-adopted at the AGM pre-meeting.


Parents are required to review these documents, and they are made available on a web reposistory or as hard-copies in a folder.  One copy is available at all times in the setting for reference.


Our Safeguarding policy is available to view via the link below.
