‘Outstanding’ is the verdict of two recent inspections of the Nursery and Early Years provision at Sancton Wood.
Both Ofsted and the Independent Schools Inspectorate have inspected the school and come to the same conclusion - the overall effectiveness of the early years provision is ‘outstanding’.
Baby Unicorns, the school’s nursery for children age 1–3 was inspected by Ofsted
in June 2012 and was awarded the coveted status of ‘outstanding provider’. It achieved a clean sweep of ‘outstanding’ ratings in every single one of the 17 different inspection criteria.
The inspector commented that children at Baby Unicorns “are particularly active and enthusiastic learners” who “thrive in this small and friendly setting”. Mechelle Clarke and her team were described as “innovative” with “an excellent knowledge of the children as individuals”. Consequently, the inspector said “parents are extremely pleased with the setting”.
Most of the children at Baby Unicorns progress to Sancton Wood’s Unicorns Nursery Class & Infant Department for children age 3–7, where standards are similarly excellent. It was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in May 2011 and considered ‘outstanding’ in terms of overall effectiveness, quality of provision and outcomes.
The ISI inspectors noted “children are extremely well cared for” and that “outcomes are outstanding and children’s personal development is also exceptional. They clearly enjoy learning and excellent progress is made by all”.Richard Settle, Sancton Wood’s Head, sums it up: “I am delighted by these exceptional reports. They show what a fantastic start Sancton Wood provides for children."
