The “NEST” welcomed Ofsted in May 2017 and were delighted to receive an OUTSTANDING rating.
Staff and Children demonstrated their commitment to play and having fun. It was fantastic that Ofsted recognised the quality of our service and care that we provide to Children.
Some of the things the inspector said were;
Leaders and managers are extremely committed to maintaining continuous improvement. They have succeeded in raising the quality of the provision to outstanding levels.
Children are cared for in a child-centred environment. They are exceptionally confident and self-assured. Children demonstrate an astute awareness of the needs of other children, and learn the social skills to form strong relationships.
Children enjoy exciting and interesting play experiences. They develop remarkable skills that support them thoroughly in their learning at school. They select and use resources in a highly disciplined way, and work together to create imaginary products.
Leaders and managers work exceedingly well with other providers where children attend. They initiate and sustain highly effective partnership working to ensure children receive tailored support for all their development and care needs.
Staff provide a highly inclusive atmosphere in which every child develops a strong sense of belonging. Children contribute to the running of the club as they have regular opportunities to share their ideas and opinions.
Parents share glowing comments about the leaders and staff. They say that the managers go beyond what is expected of them to ensure children’s needs are met.
St. Paul’s Trust Chief Executive Dave Cusack said;
“I am so proud of our dedicated staff team who put children at the heart of everything we do. St Paul’s has a proud and long record of providing high quality services for children and families and this report confirms yet again how we support the development of children and families in a meaningful long term way.”
