Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills.

Ofsted regulates and inspects to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.

The Education and Inspections Act, which established the new Ofsted, specifically requires that they

  • promote service improvement

  • ensure services focus on the interests of their users

  • see that services are efficient, effective and promote value for money

Ofsted inspect our settings and carry out regulatory visits to ensure that we effective support children through the EYFS and deliver the aims of the framework. Following an inspection of a setting, the nursery receives a full report documenting the inspectors findings.

These are a few of the comments from our most current Ofsted report (16th May 2013)...

"Children are effectively safeguarded because the staff have up to date and relevant knowledge and understanding of the procedures to follow if they have concerns about a child"

"Children move around the nursery with confidence. They make good use of the bright, welcoming and well-resourced learning spaces inside and outside."

"The nursery is warm, friendly and child-friendly"

"Nutritious and well-balanced meals are provided and children are happy to chose and help serve their meals and pour drinks with staff supervision"

"Children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are supported well. This is because staff focus on ensuring that all children are valued in the nursery and adapt practise to meet the individual needs effectively."
