“Excellent and sometimes inspirational teaching contributes strongly to children’s outstanding learning and development.  Highly effective assessment systems are used to plan rich and challenging activities across all areas of learning.  Tasks are matched accurately to the needs and abilities of all children.  This ensures that they make rapid progress.  Children are exceptionally well supported and nurtured throughout their time in the Nursery.  They are quickly helped to feel safe and

secure in school through excellent induction arrangements.  Support from outside agencies, for the most vulnerable children and their families, is very effective.  Any barriers to learning are significantly reduced through these early interventions.”
