Inspector says Gorefield Pre-school is good in all areas
GOREFIELD Pre-school has been judged to be good in all areas after the first report by inspectors since moving into its new purpose-built premises.
During the inspection in December, an Ofsted inspector said the overall provision was good, with children’s learning promoted through a knowledgable and supportive staff team.
The pre-school moved from its 60-year-old premises into its new �100,000 building in the grounds of the primary school last July. There are 25 children aged two to five years on roll.
Inspector Sue Rogers said in her report: “Children’s learning is well supported by a caring and committed staff team. Children are encouraged to be self-reliant, by having access to activities to promote their independence.
“They spread butter on their crackers, pour their own drinks at snack time and eagerly put on their own coats and boots before playing outdoors.”

The children learn about healthy eating and grow fruit and vegetables. They harvest the vegetables and make them into soup.
The well-resourced play areas provide exciting experiences for the children who use the purpose built dens to create imagined scenarios.

“Children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities and those who speak English as an additional language are ably supported through a range of considered strategies,” says the report.
Visits to the local library, church, shops and post office ensure the children learn about the community they live in.
The inspector said to improve provision further, self-evaluation systems should be developed to better identify the strengths and weaknesses. Opportunities should also be increased for parents to access all written records about their children.
