Stepping Stones Day Nursery in Peterborough has been rated as ‘inadequate’ in its recent Ofsted inspection.
The latest report has stated that children at the setting were “not safeguarded” and noted that:
“Senior staff with safeguarding responsibilities have not taken the required action following concerns that have arisen about children in their care.
“They have not referred significant concerns on to the relevant authorities.”
However, despite this, the report stated that the quality of teaching, learning and assessment, and outcomes for children were both ‘good.’
The inspector also highlighted that the issues raised were fixable.
Nursery owners Janet Baker and Kay Nichol said of the report:
“The inspector did say on feedback, ‘this is a paper based failure that is easily rectified’.
“We have requested that Ofsted returns asap and are hoping for a re-inspection in the spring. We did receive good judgements on teaching and assessment.
“We are working closely with the local authority and are moving forward to achieve the judgement we deserve.”
