A Bermondsey nursery is celebrating its second ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating in a row.
During a visit to Kintore Way Nursery School, in Grange Road, inspectors found the nursery continued to be outstanding following its previous outstanding rating in September 2013.
Inspectors found the nursery had an “exciting” curriculum that matched the needs and interests of all the children and had “lots of opportunities for real-life experiences both in and outside of school”.
They also reported that staff were “highly motivated and fully committed to the school and children” which had created a “culture of trust and mutual respect”.
The inspection report highlighted Kintore Way’s work to share best practice with other schools through a soft federation and by providing support to partner schools.
Commenting on the report, Cllr Victoria Mills, Southwark Council’s cabinet member for children and schools, said: “This is wonderful news and well deserved for an exceptional headteacher and her team of dedicated staff.
“Well done to all at Kintore Way, who are showing what the very best nursery schools should be doing.”
Headteacher Rebecca Sherwood added: “We are absolutely delighted.
“The report really reflects the passion staff here have for providing the best education for our children.
“It is particularly rewarding to see our work with children with special educational needs being recognised.”
Kintore Way and the Grove Nursery Schools currently have places for the September intake.
