Ash Green receive outstanding Ofsted rating

Ash Green, a Sure Start Children’s Centre provided by North Halifax Partnership, is celebrating an “Outstanding” ofsted report. The centre is based across two sites which means they receive two separate Ofsted inspections– on this occasion it was the 2-3 room based on the site of Ash Green Community Primary school.

Ofsted visited the centre on 1st November 2022. The inspector spent time taking to staff, children, parents and observing the room.

The inspector stated “Children strive in this stimulating environment and clearly enjoy their time in the setting, they happily enter the setting and quickly become engrossed in a range of activities. Children make rapid progress from their original starting points on entry and teaching is of a high quality”

The report goes on to say “staff have high expectations of what the children can achieve and are extremely proactive in getting any professional support in place quickly.”

Nicola Earnshaw, Children’s Centre Manager, said “I am very proud of all the staff at Ash Green Children’s Centre, their passion and hard work has paid off –  we just need to wait for the other site at Ash Green to be inspected now!”
