Kirkstall St Stephen’s Pre-School has received a ‘good’ report from Oftsed inspectors.
The report praised the effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching and outcomes for children at the Morris Lane pre-school.
The report says:
“The quality of teaching is good, staff have clear knowledge of the children and their interests. They naturally extend children’s thinking skills through purposeful interactions and stimulating experiences.
“Children are highly motivated and eager to join in, they demonstrate positive behaviour as they play imaginatively and co-operatively. They move around the pre-school with confidence as they independently choose where to play.”
There was also praise for management team’s expectations of staff and effective monitoring
programmes of staff. The report adds:
“Assessment is accurate, and all children are making progress. There is a strong focus on developing children’s communication and language, physical and social and emotional skills.”
The report says the school needs to provide children with consistent opportunities to learn about different people and communities to take their understanding of diversity to a higher level. It adds:
“The pre-school does not seek regular feedback from parents to contribute towards their self-evaluation systems, in order to develop further.”
