King's School and Nursery Outstanding in All Areas

King's School and Nursery Inspection

  King’s School and Nursery 2019

Our latest School and Nursery inspection was carried out between 25th and 26th September 2019.  The inspection was a regulatory compliance inspection and King’s was judged to meet the standards in all areas of the regulations.

The Early Years and Foundation Stage was inspected at the same time, to the new OFSTED framework, September 2019.  King’s Nursery was judged to be outstanding in all areas of our provision.

Summary of main findings:

“Children make rapid progress from their starting points.  They separate easily from their parents, engage in activities readily and are well prepared for their transition to the next stage of education.”

“Staff show that they have an excellent understanding of how children learn at this age.  They plan exciting activities to give children experiences which develop their learning.  Detailed planning shows that staff have high expectations of what each child can achieve in relation to their age and stage of development.”

“Children demonstrate excellent behaviour and show great respect for one another, often helping each other to fetch things or joining in applause to celebrate each other’s success.  Staff remind them gently how to share things and play in a cooperative manner.”

“Highly effective care practices support the children’s emotional security and development of their character so that children feel extremely happy and safe.”

“Leaders and mangers have a very clear vision for the setting.  They consistently monitor the standards of care and regularly scrutinise the curriculum to ensure that high standards are maintained.”
