Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff make regular assessments of individual children and use these effectively to plan what they need to learn next. Staff provide children with any additional support that they need and all children make good progress. Staff implement the key-person system effectively. They establish close partnerships with parents to meet children’s needs and routines, helping them to settle quickly. Leaders and staff use the self-evaluation process well, which includes the views of staff, parents and children, to help identify areas for improvement. Staff accommodate children’s ideas well and typically expand learning opportunities to develop children’s current interests. The pre-school is highly inclusive. Children learn to respect and value each other’s differences and experiences. Staff have a secure understanding of how children learn. They understand their role in helping children to achieve, in readiness for starting school. It is not yet outstanding because: Leaders have not embedded fully their monitoring processes. For example, although staff closely monitor the progress of individual children, this process is less successful when identifying progress made by specific groups of children. Occasionally, staff do not make the most of opportunities to reinforce children’s understanding of the importance of healthy eating.
