Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The quality of teaching is consistently strong. Experienced staff have a good understanding of how children learn. They provide children with high-quality learning experiences that support their next steps for learning and interests. A strong key-person system ensures that children form close relationships with the staff, who are responsive to children’s needs. They place an emphasis on developing children’s emotional well-being and supporting their good self-esteem. Children are motivated learners who play and explore the stimulating learning areas. They demonstrate a positive attitude towards learning and take a lead role in their play. Children are making good progress. The management team has a strong drive to improve. Thorough self-evaluation identifies areas for improvement and takes into account the views of staff, parents and children. Comprehensive policies and procedures are reviewed regularly. They support staff’s practice in keeping children safe and protected from harm. Staff are fully aware of what to do should they have concerns about children’s welfare. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not use the information taken from their precise assessments of children’s learning to fully update parents about their children’s current level of development and progress. Systems for supervision do not always provide staff with enough opportunities to discuss their personal effectiveness or children’s development.
