BRIDLINGTON Nursery School has been celebrating after being awarded an outstanding Ofsted report.

The nursery, on Butts Close was described as ‘outstanding’ in every category, including achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils, and leadership and management.

Head teacher Kay Roantree said: “I am absolutely delighted with the outcome of this Ofsted inspection.

“I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication shown by the staff and the eagerness of all the children to learn.

“The success is due not only to the daily outstanding practice in the Nursery School, but also the excellent work with parents, the on-site day care nursery, Bridlington Children’s Centre and other professionals.”

The inspection team found that it is well led and managed, that staff make learning fun, and that the children make outstanding progress.

The report said that the children feel extremely safe, that activities are interesting, and that the leadership of teaching is a strength.

“This is why the nursery gets better and better each year,” it said.

The nursery, which has pupils aged from three to five, has 92 pupils on the roll.

Coun Julie Abraham, East Riding of Yorkshire Council cabinet portfolio holder for children, young people and local authority schools, said: “I am not surprised that the nursery has been judged as outstanding – anyone that visits sees excellent work going on, catering for the needs of each individual child.

“Working hand in hand with the Children’s Centre, staff know the children really well, meaning that the package provided for children in Bridlington is exemplary, preparing them well for the start of their school life.

“I congratulate Mrs Roantree and her staff on this outstanding judgement.”
