Ofsted Report 2023: "Children love attending Adderley Nursery School. Children enter school with smiles on their faces and settle down to activities quickly. The strong values are brought alive in what the school provides. It is a school that helps children to be courageous, creative, respectful, valued and very well educated individuals.
Leaders have ensured that all adults uphold the highest expectations and aspirations.
Children like to talk about what they are learning and what they know for example about animals , planting seeds and eating fruit during snack time.
Adults are wonderful role models for children. They show them how to be kind and respect others. Children are well behaved. Consequently , the school is a purposeful place to learn.
School life is enhanced considerably by the wide range of things to do beyond the classroom. The school benefits from a beautifully developed forest school that is used all year round to enhance the learning, resilience and curiosity of the children. This provides an essential opportunity to explore and encourages risk taking within a safe environment.
Parents are extremely happy with the school and say their children thrive. They receive regular information about their children s learning."


"Leaders and governors lead the school extremely well. They ensure that adults are exceptionally well trained Leaders are considerate of staff s well being and workload.
Adults skilfully develop children's knowledge and learning skills. The schools motto "A special place to create and learn, connect and belong" is threaded through everything about the school. Leaders and staff are resolutely focused on providing outstanding education and exemplary care. Leaders ensure that children thrive in an environment where they love learning."
