Activities are meticulously planned to ensure that every child is challenged appropriately. Staff structure the curriculum carefully. They take full account of what children already know and can do, what they are interested in and what they need to learn next.

What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?

Leaders are highly invested in children's learning and development. The nursery is an integral part of the school's 'Early Years Village'. Children have an exceptional start to their learning journey and are extremely well prepared for starting school.

Staff benefit from extensive professional training opportunities and frequently update their knowledge and skills.Staff encourage and foster a real love of learning in children. Babies develop an inquiring mind as they actively explore their cosy environment.

They are supported to communicate from a young age as staff gently sing songs when rocking them to sleep. Older children extend their love of books by exploring different texts and recreating stories within the nursery routine. For example, when children go to feed the school's chickens, they recall the story of 'Rosie's Walk' and compare the different experiences.

Staff build on children's interests and use practical activities to develop children's language, mathematical thinking and scientific knowledge. For example, staff teach children how to make 'mud castles'. They explain how the quantities of mud and water need to be different to when mixing sand and water for sandcastles.

Children are enthralled by this and experiment with a range of textures to create 'mud cakes' for their friends.The curriculum is carefully planned to equip children with the skills they need for starting school. Children have high levels of confidence and show deep engagement in their learning.

They have sustained interest and exceptionally well-developed language skills. Children listen attentively and engage excitedly in group discussions. Staff use outstanding teaching methods to capture children's interests and check what children have remembered after group discussions.

For example, children excitedly play a game to recognise the different spiders they have talked about after singing 'Incy Wincy Spider.' Leaders precisely monitor the impact and effectiveness of the curriculum. They make sure it consistently meets every child's needs, including those who require extra support.

Any gaps in a child's development close quickly. All children make rapid progress in their learning from their individual starting points. Leaders use funding exceedingly well to train staff in specialist areas and to seek additional help at the earliest stage.

Children's emotional needs are met exceptionally well. Babies form warm, close attachments to the familiar staff who care for them. They reach out and stroke the staff member's face when being settled to sleep, showing how safe and secure they feel.

Older children approach staff happily and confidently for cuddles and reassurance when needed. Staff immediately comfort children and settle them quickly.Parents are exceptionally happy with the level of provision.

They are overwhelmingly positive about the staff and commend them for the care and support they show their children. Parents describe the staff as 'amazing' and 'fantastic' and note the rapid progress their children make in their learning. One parent summarised the view of many others by saying, 'The nursery is nothing short of excellent.'


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.Children's safety is given the highest priority. Leaders and staff are vigilant in their approach towards safeguarding children.

All staff are appropriately trained and know exactly what to do if they have concerns about a child, or family's, welfare. The school's stringent safeguarding arrangements are implemented rigorously. Leaders closely follow up any concerns and liaise closely with other agencies when needed.
