We are delighted to announce that following Manor Lodge’s recent Ofsted inspection on 18th September 2019 that we have once again been graded as Outstanding!
The Ofsted inspector was highly complementary of our nursery and the practice that she observed, stating that “Children are extremely happy and thrive at this exemplary nursery setting. They have a vast range of opportunities to learn and develop in a secure and nurturing environment. Leaders and staff plan an extensive curriculum which superbly promotes children’s individual next steps in learning.” She also observed that “The key-person system is extremely effective. The children are welcomed into the nursery by staff who are highly motivated. The leaders are very visible and role model positive behaviour to the staff, who respond without exception.”, and that “Children are incredibly well prepared for their next stages in learning, due to the exceptionally high quality of teaching across the nursery. Staff make high-quality assessments of children’s learning and development and use this extensive knowledge to plan carefully thought out next steps.”
We were also highly complimented on our safeguarding procedures, with the report stating that “The setting has extremely robust policies and procedures in place, to ensure all staff know the signs and symptoms that indicate a child may be at risk of abuse. Leaders ensure that they have a highly effective and secure recruitment process, which is reviewed regularly, to make certain that staff are suitable. Safeguarding training is part of the induction procedure and regular updates are discussed every half term at staff meetings. Staff are extremely confident in the process of reporting concerns, and put the welfare of the children at the heart of all that they do.”
