Here are some highlights from our reports:

‘Children's behaviour is exemplary. Staff promote a very calm and nurturing environment where children are extremely kind and caring.’

‘Children make excellent progress in relation to their starting points. They are confident, independent and gain a wide range of skills to support their next stage in learning.’

‘The staff provide a welcoming and inspiring environment, indoors and outdoors. Children are fully engaged, excited to learn and explore, and thoroughly enjoy their time at the school. They show determination as staff support their learning and encourage them to think.’

‘Staff know the children exceptionally well and plan activities which they know will be of interest; therefore, children become instantly engaged. Children develop excellent social skills and become very independent, choosing whether they want to play outside or in.’

‘The quality of teaching across the setting is excellent. Staff thoroughly assess children's progress and provide a varied and stimulating range of learning experiences for children. Children make rapid progress in their learning and development.’
