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 inspection was in March 2022 where the EYFS was judged to be outstanding in all areas, the highest grade possible. We were also judged to be compliant in all areas of the required standards.
