Detailed Breakdown

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.625 for Clifton Lodge School is calculated as follows: ( (30 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.625

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 3.536 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Clifton Lodge School is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.286

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Clifton Lodge School

  • Mother of Child
    4

We have been exceptionally pleased with Clifton Lodge School - Nursery. Good manners and kindness are the ethos of the school and you can certainly see it! Pupils hold open doors and teachers greet pupils with a 'good morning' and a 'good afternoon' handshake every day. The Headmaster / Headmistress greet all pupils with a handshake at the school entrance every morning - my son loves this routine! Lunches are family style with their teachers. A lot of thought and effort goes into preparing the food and menus. Clifton has a good allergy and no nut policy. The teachers are well informed about managing allergies and avoiding allergens. This was very important to us knowing our child was safe at school. Since starting at Clifton my son has thrived in all aspects of his development. He loves his teachers and he loves learning to read and write. Seeing my child happy and growing in confidence as he learns something new is amazing. My son loves going to school every day!

Thank you for taking the time to review our school. We are delighted that your son has settled in so well at Clifton Lodge.

My son joined the nursery in September 2017. The staff have been warm and friendly which has enabled him to settle in well.
There was a noticeable improvement in his speech and understanding of words/sentences in the first term and I am confident he will continue to thrive here.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our Nursery. The school really appreciates your wonderful feedback.

Our son started in lower reception as he reached his 4th birthday. Over the year, we saw his confidence and social interaction soar alongside his basic reading, writing and counting. He genuinely loved every day at "BIG SCHOOL". We loved the small class size (12 max) which meant he always got the support, encouragement and attention he needed. It was the perfect start to his educational needs.

Dear Mrs King
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Clifton Lodge School. We are delighted that your son is progressing so well and had such a great start in our Nursery.
Kind regards
Clifton Lodge School

The care and attention the children receive is excellent. They have enough staff to look after the children. They learn music, french and IT. Being introduced to different teachers at a young age is a wonderful experience to have. My son has many allergies which are all catered or and the food looks wonderful. Very patient and friendly staff. We are very happy with the nursery.
