A South Hackney nursery is celebrating after being deemed ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted for the fifteenth year in a row.

Wentworth Nursery School and Children’s Centre in Cassland Road first received the impressive rating in 1998, this time around impressing inspectors with its “vibrant, highly imaginative curriculum”, “meticulous” safeguarding arrangements and pupils’ “exemplary” behaviour.

“The nursery is led with foresight, imagination and the determination to make a difference to children’s lives,” the Ofsted report reads.

“At the heart of the school’s success is its strong emphasis on ensuring that everyone has an equal chance to succeed.”

Headteacher Carolyn Maples is “delighted”.

“What makes me very, very proud is that the staff use their energy, great skills and determination to make a difference to children’s lives all day, every day, and have done so for many years,” she said.
