St Mary’s Nursery @ Wensley Fold celebrate latest Ofsted rating

St Mary’s Nursery @ Wensley Fold gains rave reviews after a recent inspection by Ofsted

The Nursery site has received praise as they celebrate an ‘Outstanding’ rating in their latest report from Ofsted. “The ambitious staff have high aspirations for every child. They support children to gain life-long skills that enable them to become highly successful individuals in society.”

The Ofsted report highlights the devotion of the staff which is apparent in the social, personal and emotional skills that the children learn along with ‘in the moment’ activities that allow for children’s skillsets to develop:

“Children confidently take part in new activities that equip them with some of the practical skills that they will later use throughout life. For example, they challenge themselves when attempting to hammer nails into different-textured fruits and vegetables. Children listen carefully to safety instructions and follow these perfectly to gain a superb understanding of how to keep themselves safe.”

The report goes on to detail the ‘Outstanding’ provision and all areas in which St Mary’s Nursery @ Wensley Fold excel, which include:

“Staff aspire to continually improve. In response to recent training they have greatly enhanced their inspiring play areas with a wider range of natural and real-life resources.”

“Partnerships with parents are superb. Innovative ‘stay and play’ sessions help parents to gain a sense of what nursery life is like. Staff provide ingenious home learning ideas, such as enjoyable mathematical challenges, to build on children’s excellent skills at home.”

“Support for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities is outstanding. Staff meet regularly with parents and other professionals involved with each child.”

Tracy Ellett, Area Manager for St Mary’s Nurseries said: “We are overwhelmed to have once again been awarded the highest rating from Ofsted. I am so proud of my team; they have worked extremely hard to make our nursery a safe and inspiring learning environment, where all children can achieve to their full potential. I would like to thank our families for their continued support and for being a part of this wonderful success for the nursery”
