Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school The nursery is especially well led by the highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic headteacher.

By setting extremely high aspirations for both children and staff, leaders and managers ensure that the nursery is continually progressing. The nurturing and caring approach by all staff means that they know each child and their family extremely well. Children settle swiftly into nursery and quickly become confident learners.

Children's behaviour is exemplary because staff have such high expectations. Children have a love of learning and develop skills of independence, concentration and resilience early in their nursery career. The new, two-year-old provision continues to develop.

Outdoor provision now needs to be enhanced to match that seen indoors so that children's learning is equally well supported in both areas. Governors know the priorities for the nursery and closely monitor these to make sure that leaders and managers keep planned improvement progress on track. Parents and carers know that their children are safe and secure.

They are given a wealth of supportive advice and guidance about their children's development. The highly skilled staff provide exceptionally strong teaching, learning and assessment. This means that children leave the nursery with skills and knowledge at least typical for their age with a significant proportion well above this.

Children make rapid progress from their different starting points, so they are extremely well prepared for the next stage of their education.

Information about this school

Children attend the nursery either part or full time. Since the previous inspection, the nursery has opened provision for two-year-old children.

Almost all children are of White British heritage and very few speak English as an additional language. There are two children on roll with an education, health and care plan. Since April 2013, the nursery has been federated with The Castle Nursery School.

The schools share a governing body and the same headteacher but have different deputy headteachers. Staff can work across the two nursery schools. The nursery works in partnership with a group of other schools locally to share good practice.
