Springboard celebrates ‘OUTSTANDING’ Ofsted report

Springboard Special Needs Pre School is celebrating another outstanding Ofsted report making it 4 outstanding ratings in a row for the Chippenham based children’s charity.

The education regulator awarded Springboard top marks after an inspection on 14th February and the recent report stated,

“Children thrive in this welcoming, inclusive environment. It feels like a family, where everyone cares for each other, and the smallest achievements are excitably celebrated.”

The inspector added, “Practitioners know the children and families extremely well and children are skilfully supported in their learning. Practitioners’ interactions are of a high quality. They are incredibly enthusiastic and clearly love what they do.”

Jane Boulton, Springboard’s manager said: “I’m absolutely over the moon with the outcome of the inspection. I am so proud of all the staff, the Springboard children and their families. This latest Ofsted report has firmly endorsed the quality of the teaching and learning that is at the heart of Springboard. We are delighted that it confirmed that children’s personal development, behaviour and the preschool leadership are all excellent.”

The report singled out Jane for her “inspirational” management of the Chippenham preschool and highlighted that “Children are exceptionally well cared for” at Springboard.

The report also added that “Parents cannot praise the setting enough. They feel confident leaving their children, and say the manager and practitioners go ‘above and beyond’, supporting them with all aspects of their family life.”
