Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and they are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

The aim of all their work is to promote improvement and value for money in the services they inspect and regulate, so that children and young people, parents and carers, adult learners and employers benefit.

Our pre-school is inspected, without notice, on a recommended timescale.

We were last inspected July 2015 and we were delighted to receive “Outstanding in all areas”
