We recruit and train staff with nurturing aptitude to develop, encourage and enable positive experiences to the children in our care.

Nicky and David recently introduced iConnect to further inform parents, in addition to handovers conversations; iConnect is a learning journey log application and maps the child’s progress as well as recording the child’s activities sometimes with videos or photos and can be view anywhere, anytime, by the parent /carer.

Leadership and management is strong and systems for monitoring planning and assessment are sharply focused on ensuring that all children are making good progress. As a result, children with identified needs are targeted and appropriate intervention is sought.Ofsted Inspector Suzanne Fenwick
