Cherry Trees Nursery School was graded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in July 2019.

The report highlights “Children’s interests and individual needs are very skilfully planned for and met. The curriculum is filled with imaginative and exciting activities that engage the children. “ Ofsted 2019

Over two days the inspectors observed group times, breakfast club, lunchtime and free flow sessions in the nursery and commented:

“The school has a strong commitment to promoting equality of opportunity. All children are welcomed into this highly nurturing and caring school community. Children learn respect, tolerance and how to work collaboratively, preparing them very well for life in modern Britain. Leaders ensure that there is no discrimination against anyone”  Ofsted 2019

The inspectors also spoke to children and parents throughout the inspection

“Parents are very positive about the school and hold Cherry Trees in the highest regard. They sing the praises of the staff, compliment the quality of the teaching and are full of gratitude for how well staff take care of their children. One parent’s comments summarised those of many who responded to the Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View: ‘Cherry Trees is a wonderful, engaging and educational environment, with wellbeing at the heart of the nursery.’  Ofsted 2019

“Children are developing good learning attitudes and want to continue their learning at home. For example, one child said to their key worker: ‘I have to go now, but I am going to do a picture of that at home and show you tomorrow”.   Ofsted 2019
