Children and staff at Busy Bees South Staffs Water are celebrating after receiving an ‘Outstanding’ rating, following an Ofsted inspection on 01 November 2022.

This is the nursery’s second ‘Outstanding’ result. The Ofsted inspector commented that the children “build the essential foundations for future success within a safe environment”. The nursery gained an ‘Outstanding’ in all areas, where it was also commented that children show that they are “happy and feel safe at this setting”.  
The staff at the nursery were recognised for creating “positive relationships” with the children and “ensuring the children are ready for the next stage in their learning is of the utmost priority to all staff, including children with special educational needs and/or disabilities”. The team was also praised for heavily focusing on “promoting children’s positive behaviours” and as a result “children demonstrate fantastic knowledge of rules and why they are important”. 

Parent partnerships were commended with parents consistently receiving a “wide range of opportunities to be actively involved in their children’s learning, and their views and experiences are wholly accounted for”. Staff also “proactively utilise what parents say to significantly enhance planning and drive improvements across the setting”. 

Kelly Allington, Centre Director at Busy Bees South Staffs Water, said: “We are over the moon to receive our second ‘Outstanding’ from Ofsted – this is a testament to our passionate and dedicated team who strive to give children the best start in life every day. I am so proud of them all and how they place children’s learning and wellbeing at the forefront to create a safe and nurturing environment.”
