Our 2019 OFSTED report praised our early years provision:

  • Leadership of the early years is strong.
  • Teachers ensure that children experience a wide variety of stimulating activities closely matched to interests and needs. This range of activities helps most children to make good progress across all areas of learning.
  • Good use is made of both indoor and outdoor learning.
  • At the end of the early years, children achieve above other children nationally. As a result, they are well prepared for learning in key stage 1.
  • A higher proportion of current children than previously are on track to exceed the higher standards.
  • Both Nursery and Reception provide warm, welcoming and attractive classrooms. In Reception children are encouraged, for example, to have a go at circus skills through a well set out play area.
  • Leaders identified children’s skills in number as an area to improve. Nursery children are provided with extremely challenging number activities in order to extend their thinking and reasoning.
  • Reading areas are well developed and children are encouraged to share books with adults.
  • A strong focus on phonics from the Nursery engages children who are ready to learn sounds from an early age. Early writing skills are also developed well.
