A PRESCHOOL has rid itself of an 'inadequate' Ofsted label and earned fresh praise for its 'enriched' education provision.

Faringdon Pre-School is back to being 'good' after a stint overshadowed by the regulator's worst rating, which it was given last year after inspectors criticised leadership and knowledge of safeguarding procedures.

It was reinspected last month and has now received much more positive feedback across all four areas of assessment.

Ofsted's new report of the preschool said: "Leaders have taken effective steps to improve the preschool since the last inspection.

"Staff monitor individual children's learning and accurately assess their progress.

"They provide activities that engage children's interest - for example, children eagerly watched their hatched ducklings and frogspawn.

"Staff successfully design and make resources that enrich children's learning."

The inspector also said staff support children's communication and language skills well, engaging in conversation about holidays, families and interests.

Her report added: "Children show care and consideration for others. .

"They happily chat together about which roles to play in the home corner and include each other in their decisions.

"Children form positive friendships and develop strong social skills."

The preschool had 43 children on its roll during the time of the inspection.

It is based in the grounds of Faringdon Infant School and is managed by a committee.
