Regulatory Compliance Inspection Report – Riverston School – January 2018

Riverston School and Nursery were recently inspected by the Independent School’s Inspectorate.

In conjunction with the Compliance Inspection, our Early Years provision was also inspected for the Quality of Care and Education. We are very pleased with the overall tenor of the Early Years Foundation Stage Inspection Report where the personal development, behaviour and welfare of the children was deemed to be outstanding. Below are a few of the many positive comments detailed in the Inspection Report:-

  • Very warm and nurturing relationships between children and staff foster a positive culture and a sense of belonging across the whole setting. All staff are very supportive and encouraging of each child’s development.
  • Children are very happy, engage easily with adults and seek reassurance and support from them whenever it is needed.
  • Transition to the next stage in their learning is carefully considered ensuring that children feel emotionally secure and ready to move.
  • Parents commented on how well the staff know their children and how they feel so very confident when leaving them in their care.
