Hirst Wood Nursery School judged 'good with outstanding aspects in behaviour and safety' October 2014.

Ofsted visited Hirst Wood Nursery in October 2014 and judged us 'good' in 4 areas but 'outstanding' in behaviour and safety of children.

We are very proud of this achievement but will now be working on becoming outstanding in all areas.

Some of the strengths were:

  • Good teaching enables children to enjoy learning.
  • High quality care and a safe and stimulating environment encourage good learning and achievement.
  • Children achieve well and develop skills that exceed what is typical for their age.
  • The school is a highly valued part of the local community. Parents are unanimous in recommending it.
  • A strong senior leadership team has created a positive ethos that has secured continuous improvement in teaching and learning.
