As red as red can be
To show that I remember
Those who fought to make me free.

OFSTED Report:
Children enjoy a range of activities which supports different areas of learning. For example, children enjoy making marks and patterns in trays of glitter, acting out a shop in the role-play area and using a variety of tools in the play dough area. Mathematics is promoted well. Children park their bicycles in numbered bays and are encouraged to count out loud. Staff encourage children and constantly reflect on how they can engage children in learning, based on their interests. They discuss the different properties of vehicles as children consider similarities and differences.

OFSTED Report:
All children are progressing well in their learning and development. They are active learners who enjoy choosing resources and leading their own play. They are confident, independent and have very good social skills. Children are well prepared with the key skills they will need for future learning.

the first day of spring

The first day of Spring!

20th Mar 2018

OFSTED Report:
Staff teach children about rules and boundaries, good manners and caring for one another. For example, children enthusiastically help to set up the snack area, carrying plates filled with warm toast and jugs of milk. Older children help younger children and there is a great sense of family and belonging. Children's behaviour is superb. Healthy lifestyles and the wider world are promoted. For example, children visit the local garden centre and local supermarket to buy food for snack.

16th Mar 2018

OFSTED Report:
The playgroup is an extremely warm and friendly environment. Staff are excellent role models and nurture the needs of children extremely well. The love and care shown to children is first class. Children are extremely settled and have built close attachments with staff, laughing at their jokes and enjoying being in their company.
