Pre-school re­ceives top marks across the board

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A PRE-SCHOOL has scored top marks across the board at its lat­est Of­sted in­spec­tion.

The Parn­well Fam­ily Project, which is based in Parn­well Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, in Sal­ters­gate, Peter­bor­ough, re­ceived out­stand­ing, the high­est grade given by the school watch­dog, in all of the cat­e­gories judged in the re­port.

Of­sted in­spec­tor Mar­garet Bar­well said: “This staff team demon­strate metic­u­lous lev­els of vig­i­lance to main­tain the high­est stan­dards of safety for chil­dren in their care.

“The pro­mo­tion of equal­ity of op­por­tu­nity is at the heart of all their work. Ob­ser­va­tions of chil­dren’s learn­ing are used very ef­fec­tively to plan ex­cit­ing and in­no­va­tive play op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“As a re­sult chil­dren from all back­grounds and ca­pa­bil­i­ties thor­oughly en­joy their time in the pre-school and make ex­tremely good progress.

“Out­stand­ing re­la­tion­ships with par­ents, car­ers and pro­fes­sional agen­cies con­trib­ute sig­nif­i­cantly to chil­dren’s achieve­ments and well­be­ing.”

The only area high­lighted in the re­port for im­prove­ment was a sug­ges­tion that the pre-school should pro­vide time and space for “knowl­edge-shar­ing” and sup­port “con­tin­u­ous pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment” for all staff.

Ms Bar­well added that the preschool has an out­stand­ing ca­pac­ity to con­tin­u­ously im­prove.

The in­spec­tion was car­ried out in Fe­bru­ary but the re­port was pub­lished on April 11.
