Some rather sad and perplexing news re: Henry Allen Nursery School. The latest Ofsted report is rather disastrous.

As is often the case, however, the feedback from parents is generally favourable. I wonder who's right and how many of the children would understand what the inspector is saying in his letter to them. huh.gif

Didn't it go downhill because the head teacher did a runner?

[disclaimer - I don't know if this is true, it is just what I heard]

According to the BFP the headmaster has not been contactable since the beginning of the year. See full story: http://www.bucksfreepress.co.uk/news/9354201.Teachers_backed_as_nursery_put_into_special_measures/

Everything I have heard about the nursery school from parents has always been favourable. I've been to the school on open days and toddler groups and the facilities are great and the staff are always really helpful. Having read the report and the extenuating circumstances the scores seem a bit harsh...

My son went to Henry Allen - shame to hear it got such a bad report.

Wonder what happened to Mr Shaw - he was lovely and really made the nursery what it was.

My son goes to Henry Allen and I was shocked with the results. For the first time ever he had a half term (his nursery in London was always open), and he cried because he really want to go to school - for me that said how much he likes the nursery and how happy he is there. I completely back the teachers. The school will not be closed and they will have people watching/supporting them closely to improve the results. I just hope next year parents will still consider Henry Allen for their children, despite of the results - it is a lovely nursery!
