Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The leadership and management team is strong and it demonstrates a good understanding of its roles and responsibilities. It evaluates effectively and continually improves aspects of the provision to provide a high-quality service. For example, it analyses parents’ questionnaires, gives feedback and publishes the results. Staff use their secure knowledge about the children and what they can achieve effectively to plan challenging activities and resources. Children are enthused, engaged and motivated to learn, using their own initiative. This helps children to become independent learners, a skill that helps prepare them for their next stage of learning. Children are happy and settled in their environment and form good relationships. Staff are caring and dedicated to supporting children’s well-being and learning, including those with additional needs. Children make good progress in their learning. Both the leadership team and staff have effective partnerships with external agencies and other professionals, which help them to meet children’s individual requirements. It is not yet outstanding because: On occasions, staff do not provide consistent messages to help children build on their understanding of what is expected of them. The organisation of the environment and sessions occasionally leads to high noise levels within the areas for the older children, especially during times the outdoors is not available. This does not enable all children to remain fully engaged in their learning.
