Ofsted Report Ripley Nursery School 2023

What is it like to attend this school?  


Ripley Nursery School aspires for all its children to develop positive attitudes in preparation for a ‘lifetime of learning’.


Highly skilled adults nurture, inspire and enable children to grow and learn. No limit is put on what children can accomplish, including for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).


The learning environment is warm and inviting. It sparks children’s curiosity and imagination. Carefully planned activities stimulate children’s interests. Children’s learning is productive and purposeful. For example, children in the outdoor art studio consider how they can manipulate and change the materials they work with while they express their ideas and creativity.


Staff know and value every child. From the very start, they ensure that they understand each child’s holistic needs. With patience, staff show children how to do things so that, over time, they become increasingly independent. Children’s attitudes to learning are strong.
