Micklefield awarded Ofsted Outstanding for the second consecutive time

We're incredibly proud of having achieved a second consecutive Ofsted Outstanding award and we are delighted that all our hard work has been recognised again.
This means that Micklefield has been judged as outstanding for the past five years. We also achieved outstanding in all areas namely:

  • Effectiveness of the leadership and management.
  • Quality of teaching, learning and assessment.
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare.
  • Outcomes for children.

Summary of key findings:

  • Staff develop exceptionally strong and positive relationships with children. This contributes significantly to the sense of security children have within the nursery.
  • Children show an eagerness to learn as they investigate, solve problems, explore and lead their own learning. Children are extremely well prepared by the impressive professional team for their eventual move on to school.
  • The quality of teaching throughout the nursery is outstanding. Staff provide varied, interesting and highly imaginative experiences linked to children's interests, both indoors and outside.
  • Staff are highly skilled in supporting all children to make the best possible progress. Planning is meticulous and staff accurately assess what children know and can do.
  • Partnerships with parents are exceptional. Staff keep them very well informed about their children's progress. Parents are tremendously complimentary about the staff and the care and learning their children receive.
  • Support for children who have special educational needs is outstanding. Staff develop hugely successful relationships with other professionals to ensure the best outcomes possible for every child.
  • Leadership is inspirational. The management team is highly effective in its commitment to continuously improve this exceptional nursery.
