Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. Ofsted regulate and inspect schools and colleges to seek improvement in the service. They carry out large number of inspections and regulatory visits in England and publish their finding on their website.
Here are some of the things Ofsted said about our school:
The achievement of all children is outstanding. Regardless of starting points, or any barriers to learning, each child receives the care and support they need to make excellent progress.”
Outstanding teaching ensures that learning is always interesting, challenging and most important of all, that it is fun. Staff are highly skilled and know exactly when to offer support and when to step back and allow children to find out for themselves.”
Children who are supported through the additional resource provision are exceptionally well cared for and supported to learn at their own best rate. Staff go to great lengths to ensure that children with communication or physical disabilities have the same learning opportunities as others.”
Children’s behaviour and sense of safety are outstanding. They make the nursery a safe and happy place by following rules and routines well and are eager to help at tidy-up time.”
Leadership and management are outstanding. As a result, the outsanding provision has been maintained over successive inspections for a number of years. The nursery has gone from strength to strength since the previous inspection. It reviews its work rigorously and leaves ‘no stone unturned’ in its pursuit of excellence. The governing body is very effective and monitors the school well.”
Beechdale Nursery is a very special place, where the joy of learning is shared by children and staff alike.”
