Hellesdon youngsters celebrate top Ofsted report
Youngsters and staff at a pre-school are celebrating after government inspectors told them they were 'outstanding'.
Hellesdon Community Pre-School has just received its outstanding Ofsted report following an inspection on March 24.
It is the first time the Kinsale Avenue-based pre-school, which caters for children aged two and nine months to five, has achieved top marks in all areas.
In the report, the pre-school is praised for its 'excellent care and education' for children and 'excellent levels of support and communication'.
It said: 'Children make exceptional progress in this well-resourced and stimulating setting. Staff employ high levels of professionalism and are committed to offering excellent care and education for the children that attend. The system for measuring the effectiveness of the setting is very well developed and consistently drives forward significant improvements, demonstrating it has an excellent capacity to progress in the future.'

June Wilson, who has been the manager at the pre-school for two-and-a-half years, said they were 'over the moon' with the report. She said: 'A lot of it is down to the fact that we have got a fantastic team. We have a lot of teamwork and the communication between staff is excellent. We are absolutely thrilled.'
