Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The managers demonstrate ambition and commitment to providing the very best outcomes for children. Self-evaluation has helped the setting to reflect on and improve practice, to address all actions from the previous inspection. Children are confident learners. Staff create a stimulating play environment and children are enthusiastic about joining in with activities. Successful settling-in procedures, and effective partnerships with parents, help children to form strong emotional attachments to all staff. The new system for observations, assessments and planning is already having a positive impact on children’s development. Staff have sharpened their focus on children’s interests and next steps. This is helping children to make consistently good progress and to be ready for their next stage in learning. The outdoor areas are well resourced and provide plenty of opportunities for children to have daily exercise and fresh air. It is not yet outstanding because: Supervision of staff is in early stages and not yet embedded into practice. Opportunities for staff to share expertise and excellent practice have not been fully developed to help raise the quality of their teaching to an outstanding level. The good information gained from the monitoring of children’s progress is not used as well as possible, to target teaching precisely and accelerate children’s learning.
