A nursery is subject to "enforcement action" after inspectors identified "significant weaknesses" in leadership.

Bury and Whitefield Jewish Private Day Nursery on Parr Lane in Unsworth was rated "inadequate" by education watchdog Ofsted after the regulator received complaints about the quality of its services.

The watchdog carried out an inspection of the nursery in July following concerns it received in May this year.

It found the nursery had failed to meet some requirements of the statuary framework for the early years and foundation stage, which sets out legal guidance to childcare providers.

The Ofsted report found the nursery has been running without an adequate leadership team since the resignation of a previous manager which it says has led to "unsafe and inefficient" running of the nursery.

The report said: “Significant weaknesses in leadership and management compromise children's safety.

“Lack of oversight from the provider and a failure to ensure a management team is in place results in the unsafe and inefficient running of this nursery.

“Due to low staffing, the children are occasionally cared for together in one room.

"The provider has not ensured that staff are trained to meet the individual needs of the children.

“Children who may need a little more help do not receive the support they need. This is because the provider has not ensured that staff receive appropriate training, based on the needs of the children.”

However, inspectors noted that staff have formed "nurturing relationships with children" who come into nursery "happy and settle quickly".

The provider was given an overall rating of "good" at its last inspection in July 2019 and held a rating of ‘requires improvement’ in 2018.

In August, Ofsted found the nursery failed to meet the requirements of a welfare requirements notice, which included the appointment of a suitable deputy manager, issued after its initial inspection.

It has issued a further welfare requirements notice.

The nursery has been contacted for a comment about the report.
