Ofsted Report

St Joseph’s Pre-school has been rated as 'Good' in an Ofsted inspection which took place in February 2023.  We have a strong history of offering 'good' provision and are pleased to be continuing to build on this.

The inspector's report stated that ‘the lead practitioner provides an ambitious and challenging curriculum for all children, with the aim of supporting the oldest children to be ready for the next phase of education'.  It praised the setting for ‘children are well behaved within the pre-school. Staff play regular games to encourage children to develop the skills of sharing and turn-taking within a small group. Children display some of these skills independently as they play among their friends.' It also praised that 'staff present an array of language-rich opportunities to develop children's communication.'
