Ofsted has released a statement in which it confirms its inspection report of the Town and Country Kiddies Nursery in Lincolnshire has been removed from its website.
The nursery, in Market Rasen, was downgraded from "outstanding" to "good" by Ofsted and told it was not providing enough opportunities for its children to "learn about people who are different to themselves". Parents said it was an example of "politically-correct nonsense".
