Ofsted Rating Good

We are so pleased and delighted that the hard work of the Nursery team was so clearly seen and recorded in Ofsted’s recent visit. With the support of Chatsworth School’s and Oxfordshire Early Years the setting has blossomed, with a newly refurbished baby room and wonderful garden space to add to the outdoor space. We are excited about our future.

The children;

‘Older children are enthusiastic storytellers, and their imaginations come to life as they recreate well-known stories and films in their play.’

‘Children behave well, share and take turns accordingly. They are engaged in a good range of activities that support their interests and help with their future education.’

Parents view;

‘Partnerships with parents and other agencies are strong. Parents talk fondly of the staff and the changes that have been made.

‘They comment that their children are happy and that the staff are amazing at supporting their children.’


‘Staff work hard to ensure children’s next steps in learning are well sequenced and planned for’

‘Staff demonstrate a secure understanding of the curriculum intent. Staff interact well with all children and offer a narrative as they play.’
