Staff, children and families proudly shared our Ofsted results with Bethnal Green and Bow Member of Parliament, Rushanara Ali when she visited last week.
Children shared their Special Books and experiences of the wonderfully, rich provision on offer to them every day. Families explained their experience as parents at Rachel Keeling and what impact our school has had on their lives. Staff and Governors shared our views about the importance of early years education and our concerns about funding and future sustainability. Staff enquired about Rushanara asking questions in the House to support and shape Government policy.
Rushanara and her aide, Daniel, listened and enjoyed Rebekah and Clare's homemade cake in the sunshine in our garden.
It seems we will have to fight the fight with our brothers and sisters in education to have our voices heard.
We truly hope Rushanara recognises the true value of the outstanding nursery schools she has in her constituency and the impact effective early years education has on the children and families who access them.
