Ofsted Report Little Wagtails Hedgehog Class

Following our recent Ofsted Inspection on 8th & 9th March 2022 Ofsted reported:

"Pupils enjoy coming to school."

"Teachers expect the best of pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)."
"Leaders have high standards for pupils’ behaviour. Pupils behave well."

"Leaders are ambitious for pupils to succeed. The curriculum that they have provided for pupils is broad and interesting. Leaders have clearly defined what they want pupils to have achieved by the time they move on to junior school."

"Leaders have prioritised reading. Children in early years start learning about phonics straightaway. They build up their knowledge of letters and sounds quickly."

"Leaders provide meaningful opportunities for pupils’ development beyond the curriculum."

Following our recent Ofsted Inspection on 21st April in our Little Wagtails (under two year old class) 2022 Ofsted reported:

"Children show that they have strong attachments with staff in this welcoming setting"

"Staff have high expectations for children's behaviour. They encourage children to help tidy up. Children listen carefully and follow directions to put resources back where they belong. They smile as staff praise them. Staff cheerfully lead the children through daily routines. Older children show a good understanding of what to do."

"All children receive lots of individual attention from the calm and friendly staff."
