A nursery and children’s centre in Stratford described as “an oasis of calm, purposeful learning” has earned an outstanding rating from Oftsed.

Rebecca Cheetham, Marcus Street, was assessed as outstanding in all four categories - quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management - after a recent inspection visit.

In their report, inspectors noted its "wonderful engaging activities" and "vibrant indoor and outdoor spaces" where "children learn the importance of doing their very best."

Headteacher Rohan Allen said: "I can safely say that the staff at Rebecca Cheetham are some of the most committed, dedicated and caring people I have worked with.

"They have a real love for the school and that makes all the difference when we get that Ofsted call.
