Peter Pan Nursery School was first graded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in February 2013.


Behaviour is outstanding. Children become fully absorbed with their learning and work cooperatively, or on their own, for prolonged periods. This has an extremely positive effect on the progress they make.

Ofsted, 2013



After the two day visit the inspectors also recognised that Children are given excellent opportunities to develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding. Time is given for quiet reflection at the start of group work, to which children respond exceptionally well. There are also excellent opportunities for celebration, investigation and learning about the celebrations of others”  Ofsted 2013

In November 2016, Ofsted returned for a further one day visit to ensure that Peter Pan was still working at the highest levels required to retain their previous outstanding judgement.  They again talked to staff, children and parents and agreed that it was.  Peter Pan was awarded its second outstanding grading.

They noted the parents views:

“Parents have very high regard for everything that the nursery provides for their children. They particularly appreciate:    ‘the excellent quality of teaching’,  ‘the friendly atmosphere’, ‘how safe the nursery is’,  ‘the staff’s support towards our needs and concerns’, ‘the way in which ‘staff seem to be constantly looking for new experiences to engage the children in’, and knowing that their child is ‘receiving the best start in life’ Ofsted 2016

They were amazed to see that “Many of the three-year-olds, for example, can write their name without adult support and the most able children are able to combine numbers to make sums of up to 20.   Two-year-olds show a strong desire to engage with books and stories. They talk freely and enthusiastically, whatever it is they are doing, and the adults know just how to move their learning on by asking the right questions”.  Ofsted 2016
