Staff at a West Norfolk nursery are celebrating after being rated as ‘good’ in all areas by education inspectors.
In its first Ofsted inspection for seven years, West Acre Montessori School in East Walton showed it had maintained the same high standards as in 2008, in all aspect of early years education.
A report from the June visit, published this week, said staff were “passionate” in their drive to improve children’s learning opportunities and enjoyment at the school.
It also said teaching was good, and children make good and sometimes “rapid” progress in their early reading and writing development.
Inspector Gail Warnes said staff were good role models and children display “high levels of control”.
She also praised “strong” leadership at the school, and well-established partnerships with parents.
Areas for development include developing interactions with children to ignite their imagination, and providing more opportunities for staff to reflect in good practice.
