Rebecca Cheetham Nursery & Children's Centre

Our Latest Ofsted Inspection

"The atmosphere is a real hive of happy activity."

We are thrilled with the content of our latest Ofsted Inspection which really captures what a wonderful team and provision we have here at Rebecca Cheetham.

Our Nursery school was inspected on Tuesday 4th December 2018 and whilst we had butterflies, we were very excited for the inspector to see our wonderful provision in action and speak to our parents, children and staff to ascertain their thoughts and feelings.

Whilst this short inspection does not change the overall grade for the Nursery (we remain "Good"), it does mean that our next inspection will be a full inspection.  In the meantime we will continue doing what we do best in our journey to Outstanding and beyond!

It has been very difficult to keep under wraps, the wonderful things the Ofsted inspector wrote about our school and whilst we have provided the full letter below, here are some highlights from the report:

"There is a strong team ethos amongst staff."

"Children make an excellent start to their education because staff are vigilant at looking at their needs."

"Both the indoor and outdoor spaces provide irresistible opportunities for children to engage with activities set out for them."

"A strength of the school is the teaching of reading. You provide excellent quality resources that support children's mathematical development and your current focus is to ensure that they have a solid conceptual understanding of the number system before they move on to Reception classes."

"There is a very strong safeguarding culture throughout the school."

"The atmosphere is a real hive of happy activity."

"Teachers and key workers know the children in their care extremely well."

"This is a family-friendly school with a very inclusive approach."

"School staff have a profound understanding of the individual children concerned and their learning needs."

Please take the time to read our letter which we are so proud to have received; a wonderful testament of the fantastic work the team at Rebecca Cheetham do every day for the children in our care.
