In Focus May 2012
The Early Years Team - Nursery, Pre-Prep and Reception - are celebrating the success of their recent Independent Schools Inspectorate inspection which took place over two days on 24 and 25 January 2012. The effectiveness of the Early Years Foundation Stage was judged as „Outstanding‟.
The Inspection looked at how well the School met the needs of children in the Early Years Foundation Stage, the effectiveness of the leadership and management of the Early Years Foundation Stage, the quality of the provision and outcomes for children in. All four of these areas were deemed „Outstanding‟. 2

The feedback from inspectors was extremely positive following their observations of lessons, play sessions, registrations and assemblies, informal discussions with children, examination of children‟s work, discussions with senior members of staff and with the Governor responsible for the Early Years. The Early Years Team would like thank all those parents who participated in the pre-inspection questionnaires and who were interviewed by the inspectors and to all those associated with the School who helped make this inspection such an overwhelming success. 5
