A nursery looking after 38 children has improved its Ofsted rating from satisfactory to good.

Thorpe Pavilion Nursery, on Pound Lane, Thorpe St Andrew, was told it required improvement during an inspection in 2013.

But a report published today showed the service had improved in all areas following another inspection last month.

Ofsted rated its leadership, quality of teaching, personal development and outcomes for children as a two - the second highest rating it can achieve.

The report found the newly-appointed manager to be enthusiastic and ambitious for what he aims to achieve.

Staff were also said to be committed to their ongoing professional development, and were skilled in following children's interest.

Ofsted said the nursery was not outstanding because systems for the supervision and management of staff were still at an early stage.
