In a mixed bag of results, consisting of five nurseries and one primary school, Ofsted issued the full range of its rating system which consists of Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement, and Inadequate.
Here are all the Ofsted reports published during October.
1. Honey Tots Day Nursery, Stokes Croft - Inadequate
Honey Tots Day Nursery was graded Inadequate by Ofsted during its September 28 inspection after previously being graded Good. The latest report concluded that children’s health was at risk due to tripping hazards and choking hazards as children were allowed to walk around during meal times. An unannounced follow-up visit was made on October 14 and it was deemed “that the provider and staff have improved their knowledge and understanding of how to identify and address risks in the environment to keep children safe.”
2. Southville Centre Nursery, Southville - Good
The Southville Centre Nursery was graded Good by Ofsted inspectors during their visit on September 7. The report stated children “enjoy their time at nursery and have fun as they become absorbed in the activities, indoors and outdoors”. The nursery’s previous rating was Outstanding.
3. Totterdown Children’s Community Workshop, Totterdown - Requirements Met
Totterdown Children’s Community Workshop met Ofsted’s EYFS requirements. If you have no early years children on roll or present at the time of your Ofsted inspection, you will not receive a grade but will be awarded either a met or not met outcome. The previous inspection was graded Outstanding.
4. Luckwell Primary School, Bedminster - Requires improvement
Luckwell Primary School underwent an inspection from September 21-22. The inspector found that the school’s quality of education and leadership and management required improvements. The report cites a need for school leaders to establish a system to monitor how well students remember the subjects they have been taught.
