Norton Hall

Ofsted Report

Norton Hall Community Nursery is registered with Ofsted and at our last inspection in October 2013, Ofsted graded our nursery as ‘Good’.

What Ofsted say about us:

  • Very good quality teaching and planning mean that all children are fully supported and make very good progress in their learning and development
  • Leadership and management is very effective, which results in the continuous improvement of the provision. There are excellent partnerships with parents, other settings and outside agencies in the support of all children
  • Children are very happy and secure, and they benefit from healthy eating programmes which are shared with parents. Staff place a very high priority on children's health and well-being
  • Rigorous safeguarding policies and procedures are implemented very effectively by staff. This means that children are safe at all times. 

Ofsted says we are not yet 'Outstanding' because:

  • There is still further scope to enhance children's already high quality learning and independence in the outdoor area.
