Telford nursery vows to improve after Ofsted inspector finds 'children's safety compromised'

A Telford nursery has said it has addressed concerns raised by a government watchdog report, after inspectors found it "put children's safety at risk" following an "Inadequate" Ofsted report.

Lawley Community Centre where Puddleducks is based

Puddleducks Under-Fives nursery, based at the Lawley Community Centre in Lawley, was given an 'inadequate' grading in all the categories following an inspection by the educational watchdog on June 8 last year.

An Ofsted inspector found the 35-place nursery's "significant weaknesses in leadership and management put children's safety at risk."

Inspector Amanda Tompkin said she found the provider and manager "fails to share information relating to allegations against staff with other professionals".

"Children's safety is further compromised, as staff fail to maintain appropriate records," she said. "Accident records are not fully completed or detailed enough. This means that children's health and welfare are significantly compromised. Failings in procedures followed regarding recruitment procedures also have an adverse impact on children's safety."
