'Good' Ofsted Nursery School

Abbey Wood Nursery School continues to be rated as 'Good' by Ofsted in our most recent inspection (21st September 2022).

Here are some quotes from our report.


Abbey Wood Nursery School is a special place for young children at the heart of its local community. Children love to play and learn in the well-equipped classrooms and the extensive garden. The ambitious curriculum offers them many exciting opportunities to develop their learning. Children get along happily together in this diverse and multilingual school.

At lunchtime children listen and talk to each other and enjoy the company of the adults who help them.

Staff have high expectations of children’s behaviour and children respond well to these.

Staff understand that some parents and carers, as well as children, may feel anxious when they start.

Parents are unanimously positive about what one parent typically called the ‘devoted’ staff team.

They have planned how children with delayed communication receive extra help so that these children can catch up quickly.

All children, especially those who are new to the nursery, benefit from the school’s thoughtful approach to developing their confidence and communication skills.

The provision for two-year-olds is a strength of the school.

Leaders work closely with parents and external agencies to plan the individual support that each child needs.
