Little Starz

The trustees of Little Starz nursery have announced they will close their  West Norwood  & Kennington sites on Friday 27th September  2013 .

The council has withdrawn funding for the free 15 hours per week early learning time for three and four year olds following OFSTED childcare inspections at both the Kennington and the Norwood sites where the judgements were ’inadequate’. The council has  an obligation to stop funding  ‘inadequate’ childcare providers.

Parents  have received a list of vacancies at nurseries in the area and the local Families Information Service (FIS) will  speak to parents individually about alternative childcare  –  e-mail fis@lambeth.gov.uk  or phone FIS on   0845 601 5317.

Lambeth Council supports a wide range of high quality childcare providers  in the borough and prioritises the safeguarding of the welfare of the children. The coalition government tried to water down childcare staffing standards set by the Labour government but was forced to make a U-turn after pressure from families and childcare providers.

OFSTED inspect Crown Lane Primary

Crown Lane primary school had 2 days notice that a team from  OFSTED were coming to see the school in February. Last month OFSTED published their report that says  Crown Lane Primary School is a good school, providing a good education for its pupils. Under the dynamic leadership of the headteacher the school has improved significantly since its last inspection and most pupils make good progress. Teaching is consistently good and pupils have good attitudes to their learning.

Head, Ian HydeIan Hyde, headteacher at the school,  is very pleased with the inspection and that the excellent work at Crown Lane is recognised. The school has a strong  inclusive ethos where all children get individual attention through an exciting curriculum.

Any parents wishing to see the school are welcome to drop by  – after 11am on school days  – or phone 020 8670 4713 for an appointment.
