Little Stars Pre-School Quadring judged good in all areas by Ofsted




Youngsters and staff at a Quadring pre-school have received an early Christmas present from education inspectors.

Little Stars Pre-School was judged good in all areas after a one-day visit from Ofsted in mid-November.

A report described Little Stars, based on the same site as Quadring Cowley & Brown’s Primary School, as a place where "children confidently leave their parents when they arrive".

Teaching standards, qualifications held by staff, links with the primary school and child protection measures will all praised in the report, although managers were encouraged to help children be aware of the "potential risks" of using the internet.

Bev Gromett, who also runs Little Stars Pre-School Surfleet, said: "Obviously I am very proud of all the staff and children as this was our first Ofsted inspection since we opened in September 2017.

"We have all worked hard to make Little Stars Pre-School Quadring a warm and caring educational setting for our children, providing a wide range of activities both indoors and outdoors for our children to engage in.

"Therefore, we are proud of our achievements."

The report singled out staff for sharing information with parents about their children's achievements, but went on to suggest that more opportunities should be found to get their views on how"to focus on future improvements more sharply".

"Children make good progress in their development and learn skills in preparation for their move on to school," the report said.

"Staff have high expectations of children and support them to develop their communication and language skills.

"The manager gathers the views of children to identify and make changes."
