Rothesay nursery is heading the right way after being placed in special measures last summer.

Staff have turned the school around and this has been acknowledged by Ofsted following an inspection.

Janet Brownjohn, headteacher, said: “We are not complacent and we know we still have a lot of hard work ahead of us.

“But we have been given a great boost by Ofsted as they have seen how committed we all are and have observed real improvements within the nursery, so we are confident that we are moving in the right direction.

“All the areas for improvement identified from the last Inspection in June 2013 are being addressed by our senior leaders and governors.”

Councillor Waheed Akbar, executive member with responsibility for children’s services, said: “This positive monitoring inspection report is great news for the nursery. The headteacher and her staff are very determined to be as good as other schools and are pulling out all the stops to make it happen.

Janet added: “Our staff has very good relationships with the children and parents and this has contributed to the positive behaviours we are experiencing within the nursery and has had a knock on effect in helping new children to settle in very quickly.”
