Outstanding x 3!


The manager's exceptional vision for the nursery allows children to have outstanding experiences.

We are delighted to announce that Micklefield Nursery School has been judged 'Outstanding' for the third consecutive time after our recent OFSTED inspection.

Here are the key findings from their latest report:

  • Leaders have a passion and vision for continually improving practice. They demonstrate a relentless determination to deliver the best for children.
  • Managers are strong role models. They lead by example, are forward thinking and are exceptionally responsive to children's needs.
  • The outstanding partnership working with parents and outside agencies significantly enhances children's learning.
  • Teaching is exemplary and targeted where it is most needed. For instance, staff noted that boys needed extra support in developing their early writing skills.
  • Robust systems are in place to monitor staff practice. This provides highly effective support for staff's professional development.
  • Staff have high expectations of all children. They utilise every opportunity to maximise children's learning. As a result, any gaps in children's development close rapidly.
  • The nursery offers inspirational programmes to support children who speak English as an additional language, and children with special educational needs. For instance, a 'nurture group' offers focused support to maximise children's learning.
  • Behaviour is exemplary. Staff have highly effective methods to support children to feel safe and valued.
  • Children are highly motivated to learn. They make rapid progress from their starting points.

Children are at the heart of everything we do.
