Our “Good” Ofsted Report

Ofsted carried out their most recent inspection of Seend Playgroup in October 2016. We were delighted and very proud to receive another “GOOD” Ofsted report.


Our Seend Playgroup Inspection Report 2016 from Ofsted is available by clicking on this link, but here are a few key extracts from the report:

“All children are developing the skills required for the next stage in their learning and the eventual move on to school. Children are confident, independent learners and socialise well with others. ”

“Children develop a good understanding of numbers and colours and are learning to count, sort and match items. Children freely access the well-resourced environment throughout the session, which helps them to make choices in their play. ”

“The leader and staff are well qualified and committed to continuous professional development. For example, they select and attend a range of training opportunities which have the most impact on the outcomes for children. ”

“Staff support children’s understanding of a healthy lifestyle and good personal hygiene routines. For example, children talk about what food is good for them and wash their hands regularly. ”

“Staff complete regular observations and assessments to recognise children’s achievements and to plan for their next steps in learning. Overall, staff support children to develop their communication and language skills effectively. ”

“Children develop their physical skills and learn to play safely. They dig in the mud and climb, slide and balance as they use play equipment in the adjoining park. ”

“Staff help children to understand similarities and differences in the wider world. For example, children enjoy activities based around cultural festivals and take part in regular walks in their local environment. ”


Ofsted’s report summary states:


“This provision is good.”






We have already taken on board Ofsted’s recommendations as to how we can improve and have adjusted our routines accordingly.
