Nursery Ofsted Inspection May 2013

Charters Ancaster is a "GOOD" Nursery

The full Nursery OFSTED report is available here OFSTED Nursery Report - May 2013


Charters Ancaster is a “GOOD" School

Head Teacher, Mrs. Miriam Black, was very pleased and proud to receive the confirmation from Ofsted Inspectors earlier this week that Charters Ancaster is indeed a “good “ school which “provides a high quality of education” enabling “pupils to achieve well over time in all subjects”. It continued “pupils usually reach and exceed expectations for their age by the time they leave the school in mathematics and science as well as in English”. The report also said “pupils are particularly well prepared for the next steps in their education”.  Pupils themselves told the inspectors “work is challenging and teachers push you but you always get a good result”.
In praising her staff Mrs Black said “All credit goes to the dedicated team whose efforts have resulted in  many positive comments from OFSTED” including “teachers’ strong specialist subject knowledge, vibrant lessons and enthusiasm to motivate pupils to become eager and successful learners”.
Early years staff were pleased to be told “children get off to a positive start in the Nursery and Reception classes. Learning continues as children move around the enticing indoor and outdoor classroom areas”. 
The school was one of the first 5 schools in the country to be inspected by OFSTED under the new and much more rigorous framework for inspecting non-association independent schools.
Mrs Black continued “There is always room for improvement and those responsible for the leadership and management of the school will now endeavour to lead the school on to become not only “good” but “outstanding”, striving to provide an exceptional quality of education, at an affordable cost, in all areas for future generations.
Per Thorkildsen, Chairman of the Governors commented “I am immensely proud to be associated with Charters Ancaster and their team of dedicated management and staff that make Charters Ancaster such a joyful learning environment for the children. My congratulations to them all for this result! We should now aim to strive to build on this report to aim for excellence”
