We are inspected every 4 years under the school inspection framework.

Our last Ofsted Inspection was on 24th September 2019.

The inspectors found that we had maintained the overall quality of the school as 'Good'

They were very positive about the experiences and opportunities that we provide the children, below are some extracts from the report or you can download the full report by following this link.

Ofsted Report September 2019

Extracts from the report

'Children skip happily to school each day.  Staff greet children, parents and carers with a smile'
'Adults encourage children to explore and try new things, children are happy to do this because they feel very safe and comfortable.  They grow in confidence every day.  Children know that adults care about them and will always help them if they need it.'
'Leaders are clear and confident about the curriculum that they have chosen to offer the children atParkview Nursery School.  They are knowledgeable about what should be taught.  Staff plan activities well and link them closely to children's interests.'
'Children achieve well across the curriculum, this includes children with SEND.'
'Reading is a top priority for the school.  The school has a rich supply of books placed in all areas, we listened to a storytime that was delightful.'
