Outstanding Childcare

What is an Ofsted Report?

Ofsted inspect all providers on the Early Years Register at least once every four years and write a report, which is published on their website. The report will tell you about the quality of the childcare service being provided, what it does well and what it needs to improve.  

Settings are assessed in four differnt areas: Effectiveness of the leadership and management. Quality of teaching, learning and assessment. Personal development, behaviour and welfare. Outcomes for children. They are graded on a four-point scale: outstanding, good, requires improvement and inadequate. And then an overall rating is given to the setting. 


 In our last Ofsted inspection (June 2017) we were rated Outstanding.

Quality of teaching, learning and assessment           Outstanding 1

Personal development, behaviour and welfare           Outstanding 1
