A pre-school in Halstead has been rated “good” by OFSTED.

The Little Angels Pre-School at Holy Trinity School, Beridge Road, was given this rating in a report by the school regulator, published on May 14, in all three of the criteria that it judges them against.

The nursery was last inspected in 2011 and was classed as “outstanding”, but OFSTED has recently removed one of its rating levels, meaning that many nurseries are now classed lower than they were previously.
