A pre-school in Brampton has received a glowing report from Ofsted.

Inspectors singled out staff at the Brambles, in The Greem, for praise and also highlighted the “well resourced” classrooms and excellent pupil behaviour.

The pre-school was given a ‘good’ rating – one below the top rating of outstanding.

Julia Sudbury, lead inspector, said: “Children’s emotional well-being is given high priority. Behaviour is exemplary and children demonstrate good interpersonal skills and self-esteem.

“Children confidently select their own toys and manage their own needs relative to their ages, such as putting on their own coats and shoes.”

Ms Sudbury said parents were kept well-informed of their child’s progress and were involved in their learning, with the pre-school management team keeping a close eye on progress.

She said: “There is rigorous monitoring of the educational programme and children’s progress. The use of data to track children in the setting is used well to identify areas of lower achievement.

“Good strategies are then implemented and monitored to ensure gaps in learning and

development are narrowing.”

In order to make the leap from good to outstanding, the pre-school needs to focus on more support for unqualified and less-experienced staff.
