Nursery and Early Years Setting Receives Accolade For 8th Year Running

Rendcomb College Junior School’s Nursery and Early Years setting have once again been awarded the Bristol Standard Quality Improvement for Birth to Five certificate for the year 2019 –2020.

This is the 8th year that the school has received the award.

The Bristol Standard is recognised nationally as an outstanding self-evaluation framework, celebrating the strengths of the chosen schools setting and their future priorities. The Bristol Standard also permits the school to promote a knowledgeable conversation about what they do and the difference it is making to their pupils and families.

During the decision process, the Validation Panel stated: “We particularly appreciated how you really value both parents’ and children’s voices when making changes or asking for opinions…. [Rendcomb College] gave us a real sense of how a child is supported in their learning and development”.

Head of Juniors, Gavin Roberts said: “We are very proud of our Nursery setting and the excellent provision it delivers. Our Nursery children are the youngest members of the Rendcomb family but it is fantastic to see the level of confidence they display on a daily basis. This award is testament to all of the hard work and dedication of our Nursery staff and we are of delighted to receive it.”

Head of EYFS and Nursery Manager, Kim Hardie said: "The Bristol Standard is a wonderful opportunity to review and reflect upon every area of our practice and ensure we are providing the best opportunities for the children at Rendcomb College. We have enjoyed the challenges that maintaining the Bristol Standard has given us over the past 7 years and we are looking forward to continuing with the benefits that it brings for the children."
