8:40am Sunday 24th June 2012 in Camborne/Redruth
Camborne Nursery School and children’s centre The Sunshine Room had double the reasons to celebrate this month, with a special Diamond Jubilee parade and an “outstanding” rating from Ofsted.
Sue Thomas, who runs the Sunshine Room, arranged a Jubilee cream tea and crown parade at the nursery before learning of the results from the latest inspection.
Vice-chairman of the governors, Ellen Short, was delighted to announce the news.
She said: “The team all work incredibly hard to deliver the best start in education for the children and we are so proud to be here in the centre of Camborne.
“Whether learning about life cycles by actually watching chicks hatch here in the nursery or gathering, preparing and pressing apples to make juice from our own orchard, the children are given such rich learning experiences.
“Camborne Nursery School is a special very place to learn. Here the possibilities are endless.”
In the Ofsted report, dated May 16, lead inspector Denise Morris praised the high levels of staff training, strong collaboration with parents and carers and the “excellent progress” made by children of all abilities.
She said: “They achieve particularly well in communication, language and literacy, mathematical development, knowledge and understanding of the world and in their personal social and emotional development during their time in the nursery.
“Children behave outstandingly well and show excellent attitudes to learning.”
Lindsey Chapman, a proud parent of two children who have attended the school, said: “This report truly reflects how amazing this nursery and its staff really are.
“The staff are all so dedicated to the children and all their needs.”
