Ofsted - Outstanding!

We have achieved Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ in both our Nursery School and Children’s Centre and are now a partner in BEYTC (Bristol Early Years Teaching Consortium) and ‘Centre of Excellence for Under 3s’.

Children thrive in the setting as a result of the stimulating curriculum and the support and challenge which adults provide. They are exceptionally well prepared to move to the next stage of their education.

Ofsted Report 2019

Leaders make sure that children learn in a highly supportive and caring environment. The nurturing relationships between adults and children and the organisation of daily routines help children to develop positive habits and attitudes to learning.
