A nursery which was told to improve by Ofsted has been given a ‘good’ rating after its latest inspection.

In 2010, Tudor Cross Pre-School in Crooked Mile, Waltham Abbey, was told to improve its support of individual children.

Now the school, which looks after 52 children between the ages of two and three, is celebrating a successful inspection in November.

School manager Karen Burgess said: “Tudor Cross staff are really pleased to have gained this judgement.

“It recognises all the hard work, dedication and training the staff have undertaken since the last inspection.

“We would like to thank the parents for their ongoing support.”

An inspector said: “Children make consistently good progress towards the early learning goals.

"The setting's practice keeps children safe and enables all children to do well, make good progress relative to their starting points and prepares them well for school or the next stage of their learning.

“Children benefit from practice that is at least good and sometimes outstanding."

The school, which opened in 2000, has been told that it will achieve the coveted ‘outstanding’ rating if staff better evaluate each other’s progress.
