Our recent Ofsted Visit

On the 2nd April our Shard End setting had their Ofsted inspection.

The inspector spent the day observing and questioning staff and checking all of our policies and procedures.

We received some lovely, positive feedback with the overall judgement being ‘Good.’

“The stimulating environment supports children’s motivation and enables them to become fully engaged in self-directed learning. Children’s behaviour is very good, and they contribute to the familiar daily routines.”

“Practitioners expertly adapt their interactions to support the individual needs of children, providing specific support where needed.”

“Transition on to school is well supported. The manager invites teachers to visit children in the nursery and arranges individual meetings for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities.”

“Pre-school children explore and investigate resources which support them to persevere and problem solve, such as constructing a marble run or building with crates and logs outdoors.”

The full report should be available to view on the Ofsted website in the next 2 weeks.

Well done to all the children and Staff at Shard End and a big thanks to the parents for their continued support!
