We are delighted to let you know that following an Ofsted inspection on 9th November 2016, our Ilford Nursery has been graded ‘Good’. The inspector particularly recognised:
- The effectiveness of our leadership and management
- The quality of teaching, learning and assessment
- Personal development, behaviour and welfare
- Outcomes for the children
Ofsted were particularly impressed that, “Staff skilfully observe the children and quickly identify any changes in behaviour or gaps in their learning. They work in close partnership with parents and other professionals to ensure that all children receive the support they need.”
They also highlighted that, “Babies and children form strong attachments to staff. Effective settling-in procedures help them to feel confident and safe. Children have opportunities to explore different parts of the nursery and they move easily between rooms as they grow older.”
We are incredibly proud of our children and want to commend and thank all of our staff for their continuing hard work. We are taking note of Ofsted’s recommendations of ways to improve our service further and will be implementing these improvements over the coming months.
