Murrow celebrates outstanding Ofsted
Smiles are seen all round at a Fenland pre-school after receiving an outstanding Ofsted report.
Staff and children at Murrow Pre-School enjoyed a celebratory party after receiving outstanding ratings in all three areas.
Inspectors praised the leadership along with how the pre-school is meeting the needs and wellbeing of the children.
The report states: “Teaching is excellent. Staff know how to engage with children in a playful manner and promote learning through demonstration, prompting and questioning.
“As a result, children concentrate well on chosen tasks and make outstanding progress with their overall development.”
The manager, Wendy Hopkin, and deputy manager, Jennie Thompson, are delighted to see all their hard work and dedication pay off after taking over the management of the setting six years ago when it had an Ofsted inadequate rating.
Mrs Hopkin said: “We couldn’t have asked for a better result, to be outstanding in all areas is such an achievement.
“I would like to thank all the staff for all their dedication and commitment to the pre-school. I feel the report really highlighted the high standard of care that we give the children each and every day.
“I’d also like to thank parents and committee for working together with us and also the children for making every day fun and a pleasure to come to work.”
Wisbech childminder Wendy Moore, of Wee Inspirations Childminding Services, is also celebrating after receiving oustanding gradings from Ofsted.
Mrs Moore, who offers free funding for two, three and four-year-olds, is over the moon with the inspection.
She said: “It is very difficult to get an outstanding grading.”
The report states: “The standard of teaching is superb. The childminder has an acute awareness of how her own interactions impact on children’s learning and how she can promote learning at every opportunity.
“Activities are exciting and as a result, children are busy, keen to investigate and demonstrate their enthusiasm for learning readily.”
