Letter to Parents & Carers, June 2019
Dear Parents and Carers,
As you are aware, Langham Pre-School were inspected by OfSTED on Tuesday 25th June 2019.
The inspection gave us a real opportunity to showcase the changes in our approach and progress made over the last year. The Inspector provided us with positive feedback about the quality of teaching in the setting and observed how happy and confident the children are in our care, which is something that we want to celebrate with you.
There are 4 main areas that Inspections pay attention to:
Effectiveness of leadership and management
Quality of teaching, learning and assessment
Personal development, behaviour and welfare
Outcomes for children
Each area is given a judgement that are aligned with the OfSTED Judgements of, Inadequate, Requires Improvement, Good or Outstanding and these judgements inform an ‘Overall judgement.’
Langham Pre-School were awarded Good judgements for the ‘Quality of teaching, learning and assessment’ and ‘Outcomes for children’ which we are extremely pleased about, since we have being working hard to ensure that the children in our care are stimulated and extended in their learning to be ready for school.
It is with regret that we have been awarded ‘Requires Improvement’ overall, as a result of a recording oversight that related to the administering of medication for a child in our care not being recorded daily. As you will see, it was this sole oversight that resulted in the judgement moving from an ‘Overall Good’ to an ‘Overall Requires Improvement’. We have taken this extremely seriously and this was rectified immediately. We want to assure you that there have been no associated consequences to the safety or wellbeing of this child and any other child in our care.
We are pleased that we will be re inspected in 6 to 12 months' time. This will give the Pre-School a further opportunity to showcase our Pre-School.
If you have any questions you would like to ask, we will be available in the Pre-School foyer, please speak to member of staff.
We appreciate your ongoing support to the Pre-School.
Langham Pre-School Team
