Plymtree Pre-School was inspected in December 2016
and was rated 'Grade 2 - Good'.
We are pleased that our setting has done so well again - we were also rated 'Good' at our last inspection in 2014 and previously in 2008 - but we are always striving to improve the quality of our provision. You can view all our previous reports including our most recent in the reports section of the Ofsted website.
It is recommended that the pre-School complete our own Self Evaluation Form (SEF) in order to promote improvement within the setting. The SEF is submitted to Ofstedand used to assist them with their inspections. For more information, we have included our most recent Self Evaluation Form (2014).
'Children make good progress in their learning. Staff have a detailed knowledge of children's development from their observations and assessments, and use this well to plan a wide range of stimulating activities that supports learning across all areas.'
