Ashbridge on Ribble Nursery is judged to be ‘outstanding’ in all areas.

Ashbridge on Ribble Nursery forms part of Ashbridge Independent School and as such is inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in line with the Department for Education’s Independent School Standards. The ISI hold two types of inspection, an educational quality inspection together with focused compliance and a full regulatory compliance inspection. In both types of inspection the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) undergoes a full quality inspection.

The educational quality inspection focuses on pupil’s achievement and personal development, including lesson observations and work scrutiny, with the compliance section focusing on areas such as safeguarding and staff suitability. The full compliance inspection checks that the school is meeting all the Independent School Standards, including quality of education, pupil’s well-being and development, safeguarding and health and safety, amongst other things.

Our last regulatory compliance inspection was in June 2017 where the EYFS was judged to be outstanding in all areas , the highest grade possible. We were also judged to be compliant in all eight areas of the standards, with all 485 guidance points in the standards being met.

OFSTED are entitled to visit the school and nurseries registered under the ISI and the reports from their visits in February 2016 and September 2019 can be found below. The ISI report from 2017 remains the most recent report with a ‘quality’ element.
