Regulatory body Ofsted has just awarded our Little Angels nurseries in Bedlington and at Cramlington Village Primary School the accolade of "outstanding in all areas".
In a summary of their findings at Little Angels at Cramlington Village Primary School on Bowmont Drive, the Ofsted inspectors noted:
• “The outstanding quality of teaching, superb resources and environment all make a huge difference to children's learning.”
• “All children, including those who receive funded early education, are making rapid progress.”
• “Partnerships with parents are exemplary.”
• “Children with disabilities and those with special educational needs make huge strides forward in their learning.”
• “An exceptionally strong management team leads the nursery.”
• “Staff have an excellent understanding of their safeguarding responsibility.”
Meanwhile, the Ofsted inspectors who visited Little Angels at Swiftdale Close in Bedlington found:
• “Staff are highly skilled and sensitive in helping all children form strong, trusting and secure emotional attachments.”
• “The quality of teaching is superb.”
• “Children are consistently supported to think, solve problems and learn to do things for themselves.”
• “Support for children who have special educational needs or disability is exceptional.”
• “Partnerships with parents are extremely effective.”
• “Leaders and staff place high priority on keeping children safe.”
Ofsted awarded our Little Angels nursery at Paradise Row in Cramlington a fourth consecutive ‘outstanding’ judgement in 2015 - making it the only childcare setting in Northumberland, and possibly the north east, to receive such a four-in-a-row accolade.
The inspector said Little Angels made "every child feel valued and special". The Ofsted inspection report described teaching as "very high standard" and "inspirational" and praised staff who "consistently give children an abundance of attention, time and praise which supports their emotional well-being".
Little Angels also operates Ofsted-outstanding settings at Fenham in Newcastle and Burnside in Cramlington.
