Pre-school must do better after latest inspection
1:37pm Monday 14th October 2013 in News
A PRE-SCHOOL has let its standards slip, according to education watchdog Ofsted.
Alresford Pre-School, in Ford Lane, Alresford, was described in 2011 as ‘outstanding’ but in a new report published on Saturday, its performance is ‘satisfactory’, which means it requires improvement.
During a visit, an Ofsted inspector found the pre-school did not keep accurate records of its 19 kids’ medication records.
The inspector also said in a report childrens’ safety was compromised by trailing computer wires.
As a result, the pre-school has not reached the criteria required to be included on Ofsted’s Childcare Register.
The report does, though, state children’s confidence and self esteem are “effectively promoted” by staff and kids also settle well.
If the pre-school can show improvements are made, it can be added to the register.
