Ketton Pre-School rated 'good' by Ofsted
Ketton Pre-School has dropped from ‘outstanding’ to ‘good’ after a recent Ofsted inspection.
Following an inspection earlier this year, the pre-school in High Street, Ketton was rated good across all areas - quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management.
Staff were praised for knowing what interests the children have and for planning a curriculum which supports learning effectively.
Ofsted inspector Charlotte Whalley said that ‘children understand and follow the rules of the setting’, and show responsibility, for example when they sweep up sand from where people walk.
The safeguarding arrangements are effective, with staff knowing what to do if they have a worry about a child’s safety and well-being.
The pre-school’s last inspection was in June 2014 when it was rated as ‘outstanding’.
It was noted in the latest inspection that at times staff ask questions of some children which are too advanced, limiting their chance to achieve, and that they do not act when the younger children are ready to switch activities to play.
Ms Whalley also asks for staff to develop a deeper understanding of the best ways to teach children with special educational needs.
