Rosedene St. Pauls gains Outstanding Ofsted Status

Rosedene Nurseries at St. Pauls in Billingham is the second Rosedene setting to have been graded as “Outstanding” by Ofsted, in recent weeks.

Caring for children between the ages of 3 and 12, Rosedene St. Pauls provide breakfast, after school and holiday club with close links to St Paul’s, Holy Rosary and Priors Mill schools. The setting provides a wide range of play activities for the children to participate in, from developing creative skills, playing sports and board games, role play, sessions of specific interests and trips during the holiday club. Two extensive outdoor spaces include a treehouse, outdoor stage area and planting zone, Ofsted exclaimed “they (Rosedene) provide an impressive range of play opportunities for all children to enjoy and explore.”

Ofsted’s Outstanding report highlighted staff’s excellent work, “staff strongly focus on children's interests and achievements including how to strengthen their future learning skills. The manager and staff have formed extremely positive relationships with the schools that children attend. The club staff and school staff share children's development information. This helps them to plan precisely and accurately for what children need to learn next and to complement school learning.”


Manager Marisa King said “we are extremely pleased with our Ofsted report, we have made some changes in recent months and it has been positively reflected upon in this report. I would like to thank and congratulate all of our staff, parents and children for this achievement.”


Similarly Ofsted were eager to praise the team, “the manager works exceptionally well with staff to provide high-quality services to children. All children are extremely happy, settled and content. Relationships between children and staff are strong.”

Angela Thomas, Operations Manager at Rosedene Nurseries, said “Marisa has made a very positive contribution in recent months and has worked with Leanne Bowerbank, our Childcare and Education Manager, to create a child centred focus. We are always very happy when our company is recognised by others for the attention to detail and hard work that we all put into making Rosedene such a great place to learn and to work. In addition to the great news about St Pauls in Billingham, it was only 3 weeks ago that our nursery in Guisborough was also graded Outstanding by OFSTED, we are all very proud.”
