We are so pleased to be officially recognised by Ofsted as OUTSTANDING! The inspector visited us on 20 February and said we were GOOD and made two minor recommendations which we quickly took on board so that when she came again on 6 March, she said:
‘The provider is dedicated and committed to providing the highest quality of provision.
Children play exceptionally well together.
The highly qualified and enthusiastic staff provide a stimulating and vibrant environment where all children are consistently engaged.
Partnerships with parents are extremely good.
Staff work extremely closely with teachers and special educational needs coordinators in schools to meet the needs of individual children.’
Once both reports are published we will provide a link on our website.

Summer holiday club
Our summer holiday club always runs during the last two weeks of August plus any INSET days at the beginning of September so this year it is: Monday 20 August to Tuesday 2 September. Please use the attached booking form if you would like a place. The holiday clubs are very popular and get booked up quickly.
Information about the summer term
When the summer term starts on Monday 16 April, the gates to the Pleasaunce will definitely be open so please come up to collect your children from The Bridge if collecting prior to 6pm. We will continue to bring the children who are collected at 6pm down to the Chevening Road gate.
Full staff training day
We held our annual full staff training day on Saturday 17 March from 1pm to 4pm at the Bell House. We covered many topics including ‘What is an Outstanding Playworker?’, safeguarding, encouraging creativity in children, strategies to ensure children and kind and respectful to all, and more. Keep an eye on the website for photo and video evidence soon!
Please do get in touch with any questions or comments. We always welcome feedback and always aim to provide the best quality care for your children.
