Pixies are very proud to announce we recieved a GOOD judgment in our latest Ofsted inspection in August 2018.

We have all worked so hard over so many years to recieve such a strong judgment. It is practicularly rewarding that the inspector highlighted our careful and individualised planning for each child, our parental involvment, the support for children with specific needs, our work to develop childrens awareness of healthy living and the support given to staff to develop their expertise. 

The Ofsted inspector was a wonderful lady who made us all feel at ease and really got the best from our wonderful team. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ofsted for a really well managed and enjoyable inspection process. 

Our latest ofsted Inspection report is now available to download via the Ofsted website. 


We are very proud of the consistent commitment, love and enthusiasm the staff team have for Pixies and all the families who attend. 

Why not come and meet us and the children? You are most welcome to visit any week day, just call us on 01273 700556 to arrange a time that is convenient for you.

Warm wishes to you and your family.
