Bacup nursery rated 'good' by Ofsted
1:55pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
A BACUP nursery and children’s centre has lost its ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating.
Inspectors rated Maden Early Years and Childcare Centre as ‘good’ during a visit last month.
Explaining what improvements needed to be made for the Rochdale Road centre to regain its outstanding rating, Inspector Sue Rae said: “Younger children are not always given time to think how to respond to open-ended questions from the staff, therefore, their critical and creative thinking skills are not always fully supported.”
The report praised the engagement between staff and children at the centre and said its partnerships with parents and outside agencies were ‘excellent’.
Children with special educational needs or disabilities were ‘exceptionally well cared for’.
