A CHILDREN’S centre in Leigh Park which is a source of pride for the community has been awarded a ‘good’ Ofsted rating.

Trospacc, in Stockheath Lane, was also judged to be ‘outstanding’ in working in partnership with other agencies to ensure delivery of a full range of services.

Inspector Sheila Browning said: ‘Trospacc provides good opportunities and a good range of services for children, their families and other adults.

‘There is structure, a shared sense of purpose and high expectations.

‘All of those who spoke with inspectors confirmed how welcoming the centre is and many said how much they valued it and how proud they were to be a part of it.’

Sue Turle, the centre’s manager, said: ‘The good Ofsted inspection has given the centre the recognition it deserves after all the hard work that has been done by my team to support families in the community.

‘I am pleased that the inspectors acknowledged the outstanding partnership work we have with other agencies in the community.’

She added: ‘Their constructive feedback was appreciated and will be used to maintain and improve the level of support offered by the centre in the future.’

Last summer the centre, which operates from a building within the grounds of Trosnant Infants and Juniors and offers a full range of services including home visits, was totally refurbished.
