Chapel Street Nursery School Ofsted history
Our most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2017 stated that we were 'good'. Click to view the whole report.
Some of the comments the inspectors made were as follows:
'You have established an excellent culture of safeguarding and security across the school. Children are looked after very well and kept safe. Staff's commitment for keeping vulnerable pupils safe is demonstrated through the speediness of identifying children at risk, and the swiftness of adults' action in meeting their needs.
There is a strong culture of good behaviour which is reflected in the very few recorded incidents of poor behaviour.
The school's family worker ensures that vulnerable children and their families are well supported.
You have used the Early Years Pupil Premium grant effectively to further improve the outcomes for disadvantaged children. The outdoor curriculum... children engaging more in outdoor activities and experiences, giving them the confidence to explore and discover, taking safe risks when approaching other tasks.
Good progress can be seen for the most able children in the newly formed 'high achievers' group. Language skills have developed well.
Parents... speak highly of the leadership of the school as well as the commitment and dedication of all staff.
Parents are able to come to the school to share in their child's learning on many occasions... This enables parents to see how their children are learning and how best they can support them at home, as well as exchanging information regularly with staff.
Transition meetings with the local primary schools ensure that all relevant information is passed on and that children have opportunities to visit their new school'.
