Latest Ofsted Inspection Report 2018

Dear Mums, Dads and Carers,

I am delighted to be able to share with you the outcome of our recent Ofsted Inspection (please see link below for the full report).

Our Nursery School continues to be Outstanding. This is testament to the on-going care, commitment and skill that the staff team bring to support our young children in their early education.

Many thanks to those of you who took the time to complete the Ofsted survey or speak to the inspector in person. It is great to hear how highly you speak of the nursery.

While we are of course delighted to receive this recognition, we are also aware that we can be even better. We will continue to reflect on our practice and work as a team to develop the quality of experience we offer to the young children in our care. Your feedback can help us on this journey- please speak to your child’s Keyworker or email me at head@brns.org if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

In the meantime we are getting into the Christmas spirit in nursery, I hope to see you for some festive singing next week.

Best wishes,

Joe Knutson

Certified Training Centre of Excellence

You will know from sharing your children’s learning records with your child’s key workers that we regularly scribe children’s stories and act them out as part of our Helicopter Story approach. In the Autumn term we applied to Make Believe Arts to become a Centre of Excellence to enable us to train other teachers and practitioners. Last term Alison Stead and Cathryn Twine underwent 2 days training with Make Believe Arts.

We are delighted to say that on Tuesday 12th June we held our first training day and delegates were able to see some of the children tell and act out their stories. We were so proud of the children who were very confident in showing what they can do, and we were pleased to receive our plaque from Isla Hill of Make Believe Arts.

We are now a Certified Training Centre of Excellence for Helicopter Stories so would like to thank you all for your support in this initiative.
