ANORFOLK nursery has been ordered to improve after inspectors deemed provision to be inadequate in numerous areas.

All Saints Nursery at Winfarthing provided inadequate provision for protecting children from harm or neglect and helping them stay safe, an Ofsted report found.

The report said that children do not play safely because reasonable steps are not taken by the registered person to minimise hazards.

“Mobile heaters are not guarded and the surfaces become extremely hot to the touch,” the report states.

“Children's safety is further compromised should the building need to be evacuated in an emergency. This is because risk assessments are ineffective,” it adds.

The nursery was also found to have inadequate provision in terms of helping children achieve well and enjoy what they do. The quality of teaching and learning was also found to be inadequate.

Inspectors said the nursery also provided inadequate provision for helping children make a positive contribution and had inadequate organisation. They found the nursery provided satisfactory provision for helping children to be healthy.

The report found the quality and standards of care and of the nursery education inadequate.

Valerie Heath, southern area team manager for early years childcare and extended schools for Norfolk County Council, said: “We are working closely with Winfarthing Nursery to help address the issues identified by Ofsted.

“We would like to reassure parents and carers that the nursery has dealt with all of the safety issues identified in the report and we are satisfied that the nursery is safe for children to attend.”
