Information about this school

Greenfields Children’s Centre is a larger than average-sized nursery school. Children are from a number of different ethnic backgrounds. Almost all children speak English as an additional language and many speak little or no English when they start nursery. The proportion of disabled children and those with special educational needs supported at early action is higher than the national average. Most of these children have speech, language and communication needs or specific learning difficulties. The proportion supported at early action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. No children are supported by the extra pupil premium funding because children of this age do not receive it. The school provides additional ‘wrap-around’ before- and after-school care during term time which is run by the governing body. The linked day-care centre that shares the site with the school is inspected separately.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Children’s achievement is outstanding. From very low starting points, they make rapid progress particularly in their speaking, listening and physical development. Most leave the school having attained or exceeded the expectations for their age. Teaching is outstanding because staff pay close attention to what the child is interested in. Well-thought-out and fun activities develop children’s interests and enable them to make the maximum progress. Children are confident and happy. They enjoy coming to nursery and their behaviour is exemplary because they are often enthralled by the exciting activities that are offered to them. Children know how to keep themselves safe. Parents are very supportive because the school fully involves them in their children’s leaning. All parents feel that their views are valued. There are excellent links with specialist support services, including those found on site. The dedication and drive shown by both the headteacher and deputy headteacher inspires and enthuses the staff to ensure that children receive the very best. The astutely led governing body has an accurate view of the school’s performance. Governors are very supportive and are fully involved in ensuring that the nursery gets even better.
