Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Strong partnerships with outside agencies are very effective in supporting individual children and their families. This is particularly evident for children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. Managers are pro-active in building relationships with health professionals so they can even more precisely meet children’s learning needs. Children’s health and well-being are highly prioritised. The nursery recently achieved a local award for effectively promoting children’s health. Staff develop children’s awareness of healthy eating and dental care. They encourage daily physical activity. Children have access to a superb range of resources throughout the nursery. As a result of additional training, managers have increased the amount of natural and open-ended resources. This helps children to choose their own, creative ways to play. Managers have established good methods of enhancing staff performance. Regular, effective supervisions and observations of teaching, help to identify staff training needs. Training is well matched in helping experienced staff develop their skills further. It is not yet outstanding because: Adult-led activities are planned to extend children’s interests, rather than being sharply focused on addressing what children need to learn next. Consequently, children make good, rather than outstanding progress in their learning. Managers do not use their analysis of data from children’s assessment to devise robust plans to drive improvement in particular areas of learning.
