Ash Green Sure Start Children’s Centre featured in the Halifax Courier!

The Halifax Courier has featured our very own Ash Green Children’s Centre for achieving the Outstanding OfSted rating last month!

Read the feature in the Halifax Courier

Despite what has been a trying year for the Ash Green Sure Start Children’s Centre site, including the fire that affected the upper site, the centre managed to achieve the highest Ofsted rating – and rightly so!

[Excerpt from the Halifax Courier and Ofsted report]

“Highly skilled leaders and staff have superior aspirations for all families and an in-depth understanding of their unique needs.

“All children make significant progress from their starting points on entry.”

The report also said staff meticulously plan a challenging and expansive curriculum, provide excellent outdoor opportunities and inspire parents to support children’s learning.

And the report said staff give a high priority to children’s safety.

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.”
