Camborne Nursery is outstanding for the 8th year running

Camborne Nursery School has been rated as ‘outstanding’ for the 8th year in a row by Ofsted, following an inspection in October. The early year’s facility, which is maintained by Cornwall Council, was first judged as outstanding in May 2012. 

Inspectors praised the nursery for being a “nurturing and welcoming school” adding that staff “know the children exceptionally well”. They also picked out comments from parents, who described the school as “one of those magical places you thought possible only in children’s fiction.”

The report added that “children behave extremely well. They quickly learn how to listen.  This helps children to learn in a calm, harmonious setting” and that “children show kindness, friendship and support to each other.”

School leaders were praised for designing and creating “an exciting curriculum that enriches children’s experiences of the world” and for preparing children “extremely well” for the next stage of their education.

Head Teacher at Camborne Nursery, Emma Short, said: “We want to help children thrive through learning and play, nurturing their imagination and helping them to set solid foundations for their future. I am delighted that the Ofsted inspectors have taken note of this in their report.

“This is a tremendous team effort and I’m very proud of all the staff, parents and children who work together to make this a successful learning environment.”

Inspectors found that children were “excited to be at the school” and that “staff are highly skilled in nurturing children’s imaginations. For example, one child talked about listening to the clouds in the garden. Children learn how to express their ideas and feelings exceptionally well”.

Service Director of Education (Interim), Tim Osborne, concluded: “This is an excellent testimony to the hard work and dedication of the team at the nursery, who are all committed to ensuring children receive the best start in life.”
