Ofsted Outstanding, 2013

Our latest Ofsted Inspection was carried out in January 2013. This report recognised the outstanding provision provided, which is further described in the Caterpillar Pre-School Ofsted Report. A paper copy of this report is available to read in our foyer. 

Since then, we have strived to further improve our provision to ensure we maintain the high standard of care and development for which we were recognised.

Some of the further improvements and adjustments made, include:

  • The offering of termly Parents Evenings for all children and families. 
  • Introducing a pre-school pet hamster, which goes home with the children during weekends and school holidays!
  • Forward planning of termly Welly Walks for the children to enjoy.
  • Involvement in community based activities such as the Battle Christmas Tree Festival, alongside national events such as World Book Day. 
  • A smaller staff team, who work more consistently to provide security and consistency of care to the children.
  • Enhancement of the inside provision to include more natural resources; in line with our recommendation from the report itself.
