LETTER TO PARENTS RE: OFSTED Inspection October 2016


It is official we are OUTSTANDING in all areas of care and education! Most of you will be aware that we endured an 8 hour grilling on Wednesday 5th October. The inspector came and observed children; sampled documentation; sought the views of parents and staff; held meetings with Sallyanne and myself and held joint observations with Sallyanne.

The report findings were finalised on Friday 14th  and are due to be published within 10 days. You will be able to find the report when released on  .

We are all delighted with the report that focuses on our strengths with comments such as – ‘exceptionally committed and successful team’ and ‘all children make outstanding progress’.  I have to commend my amazing team and thank them for making HeadStart such a wonderful place to come and play and work.  Thank you also to the parents who came forward, many of you willingly, to offer feedback to the inspector on our practice.

Moving forward we will be continuing to further develop both Baby Unit and Roo room following their refurbishment this year.


Kind regards,


Clare French
