Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and governors at Lee Royd Nursery School are justifiably proud of its good reputation within the local community. They are passionately committed to ensuring that children thrive and learn, happily and safely. Governors have a clear understanding of the nursery's strengths and weaknesses, because : the headteacher provides them with the right information.

Currently governors do not ask enough challenging questions about the progress that children make across all areas of learning, to help the nursery improve even further. Following the short inspection in March 2018, leaders and governors have worked hard with families to improve children'...s regular attendance at nursery. Their actions are having a positive impact and attendance is improving.

Children typically start at Lee Royd with skills that are below those expected for their age. As a result of the good teaching they receive, they catch up quickly and make strong progress across almost all areas of learning, especially in personal, social and emotional development. Disadvantaged children and those who have English as an additional language make progress that is at least as strong as that of other children.

This is because leaders make sure that they are identified quickly and receive the support that they need. Despite good progress not all children have the reading and writing skills they need to prepare them, ready for starting school. Teachers do not routinely exploit opportunities to promote reading and writing across a range of activities.

The curriculum that leaders provide is exciting and stimulating. Children, including those who are two years old, quickly become absorbed in their learning indoors and outdoors, and as a result they develop important skills across different areas of learning. Adults in nursery have high expectations of children's behaviour.

They have established simple, clear rules and routines for children to follow. As a result, even the youngest children know how to use resources properly, to tidy up after themselves and to behave well. Leaders and staff demonstrate good attitudes of tolerance and respect.

Activities and resources challenge stereotypes and enable children to celebrate difference and diversity in nursery and the wider world. Leaders and governors have developed a strong culture of safeguarding in the school. Procedures for carrying out checks on staff and governors are rigorous.

Adults in nursery are vigilant and know who to speak to if they have concerns. Parents and carers are strongly of the view that their children are safe in nursery.
