As you know, we were visited again by OFSTED in March of this year. Due to COVID-19, we have been delayed in sharing our amazing news….that Capers are now officially OFSTED rated GOOD! We have been desperate to tell you all, however we have been awaiting publication of the all important report, which you can read here.

For our long term Capers families, you will have shared in our disappointment when our previous inspection did not receive the desired outcome. However, since then, we have gone from strength to strength as a workforce, as managers and in how we run Capers as a whole. We have literally transformed our whole approach and it showed in our most recent inspection, gaining us the GOOD outcome we knew we deserved.

None of this would have been possible without the support, dedication and determination of our incredible staff. To whom we are eternally grateful. They worked tirelessly, even on their days off and weekends, to turn Capers into the fun-filled, loving and imaginative setting you see when you walk through our doors today. We couldn’t ask for a better team.

Please take the time to read the report and more importantly, share our success far and wide. Thank you also, to all of the parents that supported us during those difficult months leading up to our next inspection, during the periods of transition as we adopted a whole new approach to your children’s learning.

Thank you to those of you that completed our parent questionnaire, it was hugely beneficial. Not only the constructive criticism, but also the words of support and encouragement, reassuring us that you had faith in us regardless of our previous inspection.

We can’t wait to see what the next year holds for Capers, without the pressures of OFSTED to weigh us down.

We have some amazing plans and simply hope that normality will resume as soon as possible so we can show you.

As always, thank you for your continued support.
