Carole Beedham, head of Brookes Cambridge Independent School, near Risby, says she is delighted after the school’s Early Years provision achieved an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted report.

Catering for children up to the age of five, a team from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) rated the school as outstanding across all areas.

Mrs Beedham said: “I am delighted that the dedication and hard work from all my staff has been formally recognised.

“To be inspected as meeting all competencies and to have an outstanding early years in our first inspection as Brookes Cambridge underpins our vision of being a school that is safe and has the highest quality and standards in teaching and learning.”

It was reported that the children’s learning experiences are well planned and meaningful and, as a result, they are developing high levels of independence for learning and are prepared for the next stage of education.

Inspectors also singled out facility quality, stimulating curriculum, enhanced staff ratio and learning development for particular praise.

The report, which also praised staff, said that children demonstrated excellent personal development for their age; they are happy in the setting, confident to try new things and interact well with each other and their teachers.

Brookes Cambridge also met all the ISI’s stringent regulatory standards, including education quality, spiritual, moral social and cultural development, welfare, health and safety, facilities, information share and leadership.
