Fenland pre-school celebrates after gleaming Ofsted inspection
CHILDREN and staff at Terrington St John Pre-School are celebrating after a glowing report from Ofsted.
Inspectors rated the pre-school, based within the primary school, as good in all categories last month and considered important areas such as communication, language and literacy to be a strength of the nursery.
The team of inspectors, lead by Melanie Calway, suggested the only area of improvement was to encourage parents to contribute more to the written and photographic record of their child’s development in learning journals.
Ms Calway said: “Children’s individual needs are met because staff get to know them very well and use detailed observations of their play and learning to plan opportunities to help them progress.”
Carolyn Howard, chairman of the pre-school committee, said: “We are very proud of our pre-school and I am delighted that Ofsted has acknowledged the high quality of learning and dedication of staff.”
