Hi everyone,
we have our little one in Grena Road for a few months now, although seems to be happy there, we are however very concerned about her development in the nursery as such.
Their newly issued Ofsted report from March is very poor and it has brought up lots of concerns that the nursery needs to improve by 26/04.
- the management team does not take appropriate responsibility for identifying and tackling inconsistencies in the quality of teachin
- staff do not have sufficient opportunities to undertake further professional development, incl training to help them develop their knowledge and improve outcomes for all children
- children are not fully involved in learning about different cultures and beliefs to support their understanding of the wider world. Self-evaluation is not used effectively to identify and target key areas for improvement.
I don't know what to do, is the nursery going to meet the requirements by 26/04?
Shall I just look for another nursery? Does anyone have any experience on this and what are your views.
Thanks in advance for your opinion and advice!

We've been asked to post this by the Nursery in question

Following the recent disappointing inspection judgement we have taken Ofsted's feedback very seriously. Our priority as always is the wellbeing and education of the children in our care and our partnership with parents. We know that parents place a huge trust in us to do the best for their family and we are doing all we can, as a matter of urgency, to maintain their trust and confidence.

We have a development plan underway at the nursery and are committed to delivering the quality of care and education that we can be proud of.

We are heartened by the many positive comments within the inspection report but also mindful of the observations that have led to this overall rating. We are addressing these concerns as a matter of priority and we have provided additional support to the nursery from our highly qualified Early Years specialists and Regional Team.

If families have any questions and would like to speak to a member of the Nursery or Regional Team please do let us know."
