Beverley MP Graham Stuart, accompanied by Councillor Pauline Greenwood, recently visited Fir Tree Nursery School on Hull Bridge Road near Tickton to celebrate their new “outstanding” rating by the education regulator, Ofsted.

Ofsted earlier this year rated the popular nursery as outstanding across all criteria, up from good in 2014. 

“It’s fantastic that Beverley & Holderness is adding another outstanding nursery to its ranks”, Mr Stuart said.

“You can tell as soon as you walk in the nursery that Fir Tree children are receiving the best care and education possible. As the report said, the manager and team are inspirational. They have a real thirst to expand their skills and knowledge so they can better serve their children.”

He continued: “Not only are these children receiving outstanding education, but they are learning about community service and looking after those less fortunate than themselves. The nursery recently raised over £1,000 so one of the children could have surgery to help her walk independently. During the Christmas term the children made artwork to decorate the walls of Hull Royal’s Children’s wards.”
