Ofsted think we are good too!

Ofsted visited in September 2016 and were very impressed. Here are some quotes:

"Children are exceptionally confident"

"Staff pay very good attention to children's health and emotional well-being"

"A wide range of interesting activities encourages children to join in and sustains their interest to investigate further."

"Children's behaviour is extremely good. They learn to take responsibility for their own actions, for example, they use timers to organise fair turn taking of resources"
