A Pudsey nursery has received a ‘good’ report from Ofsted inspectors – six months after being told it required improvement.

Cliffe House Day Nursery, on Richardshaw Lane, has been rated as ‘good’ in the four main areas of quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and leadership.

The report says that children make good progress since its last inspection in April and added: “The nursery environment, both indoors and outdoors, is stimulating and engaging. As a result, children quickly start to explore and choose interesting things to do.

“Younger children are introduced to new vocabulary as they work with play dough. They snuggle up in reading dens as staff share familiar stories with them.”

Amongst the praise, the inspector noted that leaders and managers have worked hard since the last inspection to develop a clear vision for the educational programme and nite that staff use their detailed knowledge of the children to plan meaningful learning opportunities.

The inspector says the school needs to further strengthen staff supervision arrangements.

Inspectors in April had told the nursery that it needed to improve.

They had raised concerns about the supervision of children, strengthening the curriculum and ensuring staff who are responsible for children’s care and learning have the required training and qualifications to meet minimum statutory requirements. The latest report indicates those issues have been resolved.
