Ofsted news from our Bletchingdon setting

We have the pleasure to let you know that the Ofsted report from Bletchingdon’s inspection on the 17th January is now available to view on the Ofsted website. (Link below)

Inspection of Willow Cottage Nursery

We are extremely proud of the children who behaved impeccably well, and of the staff who all remained very calm, secure in the knowledge that they just needed to show off what they do every day.

The report is well worth a read, here are some of our favourite highlights:

“Staff show genuine interest in the children and their families and form strong bonds with them.

Experienced staff create a calm, cosy and homely environment that children adore.

Leaders have created an ambitious curriculum for all children. This is based on the secure knowledge of children’s current skills and interests and takes account of what they want children to learn next.

Staff reflect a positive and respectful culture and have high expectations for children’s behaviour.

Staff sensitively support and promote children’s emotional security, resilience, independence and development. Children thrive in their nurturing environment. They build very strong emotional bonds with their key person.

Children demonstrate very good levels of self-confidence and self-esteem and behave impeccably well. They are motivated to explore and play extremely well together.

Congratulations to the whole team.
