Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. Ofsted reports directly to Parliament and is both independent and impartial. It inspects and regulates services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.


These are a few comments made by Ofsted on our last inspection:

  • The key person seeks good information on children's starting points and gets to know the children well. This enables them to know what motivates the children to learn and how they can plan to support their development. They provide strong support for children's key areas of development, which prepares them well for the future.

  • Staff engage children in purposeful conversations throughout their play, which promotes their speaking and listening skills well.

  • The provider uses effective recruitment and induction procedures to ensure staff suitability and meet the required staff to children ratios. This ensures the provider protects and promotes children's welfare.

  • They support children well with learning to share, to understand their feelings and to take care of the environment.
