Warrington’s only Local Authority maintained nursery school with designated provision for children with additional needs, has been judged outstanding in a recent Ofsted inspection report (April 2010), praising its ‘magical atmosphere of calm, nurture and fun’.

Ofsted inspectors’ main focus was on promoting learning through first-hand experiences. The children’s excellent attainment was highlighted and inspectors discovered a rich and creative mix of activities, visits and visitors alike on offer at the school. Children were also found to have a mature understanding of leading healthy and safe lifestyles and their exceptional behaviour was applauded.
The rigorous inspection revealed that Sandy Lane Nursery School’s success is down to the effective leadership and management of the Headteacher, Mrs Lindsay Bray, and the Governing Body, led by Mrs Maureen Banner. Strong teamwork amongst staff, close working relationships with outside agencies, links with the local community and especially good relationships with parents and carers were all noted.
Headteacher, Mrs Bray said, “All the staff work incredibly hard to make this an excellent nursery. I’m delighted with the Ofsted report and we will continue to provide the best care possible for the children who come here.”
Chair of Governors, Mrs Banner added, ‘I am grateful to Lindsay Bray for her inspirational leadership and to all the staff for their energy, cheerfulness and the love and security they give to the children in their care. Their hard work and dedication did get a just reward.’
Additional Support for Children with Special Educational Needs

The Local Authority provides additional supported places at Sandy Lane Nursery School for children with a previously recognised special educational need.  Additional staff are available there so that all children can be included in the full range of nursery activities.
The nursery school also has provision for those children whose needs are more complex and who would benefit from a smaller environment.
