PRE-SCHOOLS OUTSTANDING HAT-TRICK

 

In one month, three pre-schools in Bedford Borough have been judged by Ofsted to be Outstanding - Pinchmill, Stewartby and Wilstead.

 

Cllr Henry Vann, Portfolio Holder for Education at Bedford Borough Council said: “This is great news. The pre-schools have performed exceptionally well. Giving children a solid foundation in their early years is absolutely vital in tackling inequalities and preparing children for school. We are delighted that, in just one month alone, three pre-schools have been recognised to be Outstanding.”

 

All three Pre-Schools were recognised as Outstanding in each category assessed.

The categories are; ‘The Quality and Standards of the Early Years Provision’, ‘How Well the Early Years Provision Meets the Needs of the Range of Children Who Attend’, ‘The Contribution of the Early Years Provision to the Well-Being of Children’, ‘The effectiveness of the Leadership and Management of the Early Years Provision’.

 

The results of these most recent inspections also mean that all three Pre-Schools have maintained their previous Outstanding rating.

 

96% of Bedford Borough Early Years Settings are graded by Ofsted as Good or Outstanding, which is above the national average of 81% (based on March 2015 inspection outcomes).
