A NURSERY school in Bow has been praised for giving children a good start to their school days.

Ofsted inspectors rated the Children's House Nursery School as 'good' and said they were impressed by the leadership at the school.

The school in Bow Road has 94 pupils aged between three and five.

In their report inspectors said: "Children's House Nursery is a good school that is building on its strengths because of the excellent leadership of the headteacher.

"The school is committed to ensuring the children achieve as well as they can while learning through relevant and interesting activities. There is a dedicated and effective teaching force and the headteacher has encouraged teachers to take more responsibility for the curriculum, and school improvement."

They have noted a significant improvement in the way children learn through doing things.

And inspectors rated children's achievement as good and their personal development and well-being as outstanding.

In her letter to the children who go to the nursery school inspector Judy Lawson said: "I could see how much you enjoy coming to school and how much fun you have. I am very pleased to see how well you all work and play together. You are very busy all day long and behave very well indeed."

She added: "Your teachers are good at helping you learn and give you lots of interesting things to do."

And she wrote: "All the grown ups in school know each of you very well and are careful to give each one of you the help you need for you to learn. This means that you have learnt what you need to know when you go to the big school. Your teachers are proud of you all and you should be very proud of your school.

"Your are very well cared for and I know that the grown ups who care for you appreciate what the school does for you and your families."

She told the children she has asked teachers to give them a chance to tell them what they have learned, to help reinforce their learning, and prepare them for moving on to 'Big School'.
