PUPILS AND parents at Jeffrey’s Corner Springhead are top of the class after achieving ‘Outstanding in All Areas’ in their latest Ofsted inspection.
The nursery on Cooper Street, which is part of the Kids Planet Group, impressed inspectors in February to receive the highest rating possible.
Clare Roberts, CEO of Kids Planet Group, said “I’m so pleased our Springhead nursery has received ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
“The whole team have worked very hard and with their commitment and passion they ensure all the children receive the very best childcare.
“To date, our nurseries have achieved outstanding ratings by Ofsted at Springhead, Dukinfield, Higher Broughton, Beamont, Bridge Farm Crewe, Widnes, Lymm, Prestwich, Sale, Hale, Warrington and Southport.”
Praise in the Ofsted report includes: “Teaching is exceptional. The highly qualified staff team expertly questions and talks to children, encouraging them to think for themselves.”
It adds: “Partnership working is exemplary and the care of children with special educational needs is exceptional.
“Staff form exceptionally strong relationships with parents and are fully aware of all children’s individual needs.”
“Staff help children to develop the essential skills needed to become confident and independent learners.
“They place an exceptionally high emphasis on promoting children’s emotional well-being and are skilled in supporting children’s move to school.”
The popular nursery has been developed to provide each age group with separate areas with stimulating colours, as well as areas for children to explore and discover through play.
There is a wrap-around care service for children attending Springhead Infant School Nursery.
The fully qualified and carefully selected staff at Kids Planet are friendly and approachable, aiming to develop young minds through play and give children the very best start.
