Awards & Achievements
The Old School House Nursery has achieved a number of excellence awards for our quality of childcare, our innovative programmes and our commitment to health and wellbeing.
We are immensely proud of these achievements, none of which would be possible without the tireless work of our staff, and the brilliant families we work with.
IIP Health and Wellbeing Award
20 September 2015
We are very proud that OSHN has become one of only four organisations nationally to achieve the IIP Health and Wellbeing at Work Award for the second time. As an Investor in People The Old School House is already recognised as an industry leader in supporting and getting the best out of people. Now as a pioneer of the new Health and Wellbeing Award we have demonstrated an even stronger commitment to our team that goes above and beyond the existing Standard. After a rigorous one-day assessment that involved 121 interviews with the staff team, observations and the viewing of key documents, our IIP assessor Viv awarded the OSH with advanced level accreditation.
Linda baston-Pitt was invited to attend a celebratory dinner and award ceremony at the Churchill War Rooms, in Westminster, London on September 8th, which was followed up by a mini presentation here at nursery.
Key areas of strengths highlighted included:
- Creating transparency and trust and motivating and inspiring people to achieve above and beyond the norm
- Making use of external best practice and developing this to be effective within the Nursery including much good work based on the previous IIP assessment reports
- Helping people to understand their strengths and to use their initiative to lead and work with others to improve the Nursery’s performance
- Creating a culture of health and wellbeing which supports people both within and outside the Nursery and includes all 3 key areas of physical, psychological and social health and wellbeing.
A huge well done to an amazing team!
The Nursery is always seeking to develop and be part of new innovations so that their practice is continually developing. They are creative and proactive and have a strong commitment to research and development that is evident in their outstanding practice.
