Ofsted Report

Witchford Rackham Pre-School was last inspected by Ofsted in October 2016. We were rated “Outstanding” in all areas of provision. The inspector commented on:

  • The quality of teaching is inspirational. Staff consistently demonstrate high expectations of what children can achieve. They instinctively adapt and reshape activities, following children’s emerging interests and making the most of every learning opportunity.
  • Children’s emotional well-being is highly prioritised. The key-person system is highly effective. Children establish secure attachments with staff. They demonstrate that they feel safe and secure, and are confident to approach all staff.
  • Leadership is highly effective. The manager has successfully implemented changes over the last year to improve practice and children’s experiences, such as sensory and messy play opportunities.
  • ​Staff highly value parents’ contributions about their child’s experiences at home. Staff work closely with parents to ensure assessments of children’s progress and next steps in learning are shared promptly to promote continuity in children’s learning at home and at pre-school.
