A CHIPPING Sodbury playgroup has maintained its rating of good after a visit by an Ofsted inspector.
Raysfield Pre-School Playgroup operates four days a week in Dodington Parish Hall, Finch Road, with 43 children on roll at the time of the inspection.
Ofsted’s Angela Cogan said in her report that teaching was of a good standard and children made good progress.
Staff were well led and there were rigorous procedures in place that kept youngsters safe.
She found staff and management had built good relationships with parents and other professionals, which had a particularly positive impact for children with additional needs.
In her recommendations, Ms Cogan said the children should get outside more in order to have more fresh air, exercise and outdoor learning experiences. She also said there should be more challenge in the children’s play.
