Yesterday saw the release of Ofsted’sÂ annual report by Chief Inspector Christine Gilbert with all the results from their inspections in the period 2008/9.
The report outlines how all schools have performed in their latest Ofsted inspections and goes into further detail on how the education system is working as a whole.
What was of particular interest to us was the number of schoolsÂ in Wolverhampton that achieved an “Outstanding” result in their inspections, there were in total only 5 in our city reaching this standard and with such a low number is is fantastic that one of these comes from our area, Ashmore Park Nursery School
You can read the full report for the nursery online over on the Ofsted website but is essence its opens with this:
“The nursery and children’s centre provide an outstanding quality of service to the local community. Children get a superb start to their education.”
…and continues with more of the same.
Chairman of the School’s Governing body, Phil Bateman, had this to say about the schools achievement:
As Chair of Governors I am so proud of the staff, children, parents and my fellow governors of Ashmore Park Nursery and The Parks Children’s Centre!
Ofsted have a reputation for straight talk and strong criticism when education establishments fall under their reporting procedures. But we are celebrating today because this detailed Ofsted report that Ashmore Park Nursery and the Parks Children Centre has received is nothing short of fantastic!
You can read the chairs full statement down in the comments.
This is a fantastic result for, what I know from friends who’s children attend there, is an amazing school. I think the head, the governing body and all the staff who have worked so hard to achieve this standard deserve a huge “WELL DONE”Â from the community for serving our children so well!
