Ofsted Report

Dear Parents/Carers We would like to extend our congratulations to Mr Holmes, all the staff, and, most of all, the children of St Philip’s Marsh Nursery School and Cashmore Early Years Centre for the outcome of our recent inspection. The school has maintained its judgement of Good. We are particularly pleased that we are recognised as a ‘beacon in the community’ for our culture of safeguarding, and ‘pivotal to the wellbeing and early education of the children who attend’. We should all be proud of our school which continues to improve over time. As noted by the inspectors, Mr Holmes, the senior leadership team and governors have an excellent understanding of what needs to be done to improve the school even further. Thank you to parents who took the time to complete the Parent View questionnaire and for those parents who spoke to the Ofsted inspectors on the day. The letter is attached and is available on the school website. It will be available on the Ofsted website from 4th October 2017. Yours faithfully Enza Phillips (Chair of Governors on behalf of the Governing Body) A copy of the Ofsted Report can be downloaded here Ofsted Report...

Welcome

Welcome to all our new children and families and welcome back to our returners. I hope you enjoyed your summer holidays. The children are settling in well, making new friends, getting to know their key person and exploring their new environment. We also appreciate your support during this time of induction. This has been carefully planned and thought out so that it is in the best interests of all children. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be settling in many new children to the school. It is important that the children feel safe and secure and that staff can build relationships with individual children and families. The purpose of children coming gradually is so that children can have more individualised attention and that the transition is handled sensitively. You visiting with your child is a really important part of this process as children will settle more quickly when they see you interacting within the environment. If you have any concerns about how your child is settling then please talk to your child’s key person, Mr Holmes or Miss Draper. Please could you ensure you bring your child’s birth certificate when you visit for your child’s induction. Check out our gallery to see the fun we are...
