''Church Hill Nursery School and Children’s Centre is outstanding.


Skilled, knowledgeable leaders and managers, including the governing body, are ambitious for children to receive the best possible start to their independent life.


The pursuit of excellence in all activities, together with the school’s
involvement in the children’s centre, has resulted in significant improvements in provision, children’s achievements and capacity to improve since the previous inspection.

Achievement is outstanding.


Children, including those new to speaking English, and those with a disability or special educational needs, rapidly acquire
knowledge, skills and understanding across the areas of learning. Some count confidently up to 20 and sometimes beyond, or have begun to recognise familiar words and to write simple sentences.

Teaching is outstanding.


Through detailed observations, and close partnerships with parents, carers and specialist advisers, staff know the children, their interests and specific needs exceptionally well. They use this knowledge to implement imaginative teaching strategies, and sharply focused interventions that are matched precisely to children’s individual needs. Staff interactions
extend children’s learning extremely well, especially in communication, language and literacy.


Behaviour and safety are outstanding.


Children have excellent, enthusiastic attitudes to learning, often sustaining their involvement in activities for long periods of time. They know how to keep themselves safe, especially when playing in the garden.

Leadership and management are outstanding.


Leaders and managers have sustained the high quality aspects of the school found in 2009. Staff training, leading to high level qualifications in early years work, targets set in performance management, coaching, and regular monitoring of the quality of teaching have led to outstanding achievements. The school garden, ‘International Day’, celebrations of different cultures and visits out contribute significantly to pupils’ excellent spiritual, moral, social and cultural development''.
