Our Early years provision was graded as 'Good' at our most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2018.


'Children make a good start in the Early Years.' ( Ofsted March 2018)


'They take full advantage of the extensive indoor and outdoor resources.' ( Ofsted 2018)


'Each morning, children enter the Nursery and Reception classes eager to learn. Adults develop warm relationships with children and promote their personal, social and emotional development successfully. This means children feel safe and develop a strong sense of security in their surroundings.' (Ofsted March 2018)
