Quick insights from ofsted Powered by AI

This insight was generated by AI, based on latest Ofsted report.

Diverse Books and Toys: Children take books home to enhance a love of literature. 'Stella the sloth' goes on exciting adventures with families to encourage children to share experiences with others.
Indoor and Outdoor Facilities: Outdoor learning extends children's understanding, as they plant and grow celery, carrots and beetroot, and then make them into soup.
Activities: Staff use learning programmes to provide children with very high levels of early reading, writing and mathematical skills as well as preparation for school.
Skills , Knowledge and Behavior: Teaching standards are excellent. Children access exciting activities and staff have clear learning intentions. Staff take learning deeper by challenging children to think, with questions, such as 'how can we make it heavier' to develop their ability to problem-solve. As a result, children become exceptional learners by the time they leave for school.
Communication: Parent partnerships are superb. Parents report that children love attending the nursery. They appreciate the effective communication and regular information, especially over lockdown periods, whereby staff created videos to support home learning.
Community Building: Parents feel listened to and valued, as they are given frequent opportunities to give feedback via surveys and discussions.
Programs and Resources: Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities and those who speak English as an additional or dual language are incredibly well supported. The special educational needs co-ordinator is highly proactive in recognising concerns and putting swift support into place with written plans. As a result, children make extremely good progress in their learning and development.
Staff Training: The company have a 'champion' for training staff on sign language. Staff use simple signs alongside speech to support understanding.
Welcoming and Professional Staff: Children create close bonds with staff, who offer excellent support and warmth.
Safeguarding Training: Staff are highly knowledgeable of safeguarding principles and understand their responsibility to keep children safe.
Play and Learning Integration: Observation and planning processes are excellent. Staff track children individually and in groups. Planning is based around children's interests and developmental needs. Older children choose challenges, and staff plan exciting activities around these. This results in children gaining maximum learning opportunities.
Transition to Primary School: Pre-school children have physical education lessons, changing into their kits, in preparation for when they need to do this at school. Staff celebrate transition to school with a special 'leavers party'.
Diversity Management: Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities and those who speak English as an additional or dual language are incredibly well supported.
Child Safety Management: Management have stringent risk assessments in place to keep areas safe. There are robust fire evacuation and security measures in place for emergency situations. Older children can become 'safety officers' for the day and take responsibility in risk assessing areas.
Children's Safety and Security: Staff know signs to look out for wider safeguarding issues, such as being drawn into the transportation of drugs, or radicalisation.
Teaching Personal Safety: The nursery also has a designated 'health and safety champion' in place.
Happiness and Settling: Children adore attending this all-inclusive nurturing nursery. They come in happily and settle quickly to play.
