‘Satisfactory’ is the minimum level of quality required for Cayman Islands schools. During the first cycle of inspections, Tiffany’s had previously been rated ‘Weak’ in October 2018, and inspectors had found the school to be making ‘Weak’ progress in follow-through inspections in April 2019 and December 2019.
“Leaders were competent and committed to improvement and this was evident in the improvements since the last inspection, as well as their plans for future improvements,” according to the inspection report.
During its inspection from 23-25 June, Tiffany’s earned ‘Satisfactory’ ratings in 13 of 14 individual categories, with 1 ‘Weak’ rating.
“The quality of provision offered at Tiffany’s Preschool was judged as satisfactory. Children’s achievement in most areas of exploration, respect and communication was judged as satisfactory, with movement being judged as good,” inspectors said.
The school improved its ratings in 10 of 14 areas, but declined to ‘Weak’ in terms of children’s sense of ‘Well-Being’.
Located in West Bay, Tiffany’s has an enrolment of 30 students from 2-4 years old.
Inspectors rate schools in individual categories, using a scale of Weak/Satisfactory/Good/Excellent. The overall grade is determined according to the individual scores.
Because the school was rated ‘Satisfactory’, it will not be subject to a Follow-Through inspection, and will be inspected during the next cycle of inspections beginning in 2023.
