We hope to see as many of you there as possible.
OFSTED awarded Good. We are pleased to announce that we have just been awarded good in all areas by Ofsted. We are particularly proud of the following comments:
“Parents are very happy with the care provided, they say friendly staff provide regular updates about their children’s progress and ideas on how to support learning at home”
