Grantham nursery school receives fourth consecutive "outstanding" rating
A nursery school in Grantham has maintained its ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted for the fourth consecutive time.
Ofsted visited Wyndham Park Nursery School last month and praised the “vast range of bespoke learning opportunities."
The report also praises outcomes for all groups of children with children making outstanding progress from their different starting points. It reported that “a significant proportion of children make more than typical progress across all areas of learning due to the highly personalised learning in which the children flourish”.
Ofsted inspector Andrew Lakatos went on to praise the “excellent relationships” and the “kindness, support and teamwork that permeate the entire setting and contribute significantly to its success”.
He was also full of praise for the children’s attitudes and “outstanding behaviour”.
Laura Cook, headteacher at Wyndham Park since September 2014, is delighted with the report.
She said: “I am obviously thrilled with the result of the recent inspection. The staff and governors have worked so hard since the previous inspection and have been enthusiastic and committed to implementing the changes that continue to drive the nursery forward.
“This is the fourth consecutive Outstanding judgment for the school and is recognition of the hard work and effort by the entire team that goes on throughout the year.
“We are proud that our nursery is full of happy children and their parents. Without the amazing support from our children’s families, our role would be a lot more difficult. This is a well deserved success for our school.”
The nursery school is one of 400 maintained nursery schools in the country after being built in 1942 under the Ministry of Health to provide childcare for women who were needed in the war effort.
It was run by a matron and a team of nurses before it converted into an education nursery in 1947.
The nursery has spaces left for September and is holding an open morning on Friday, July 5 between 9.30am-10.30am.
