Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children and staff have close and respectful relationships. Behaviour is excellent with children of all ages helping each other, engaging responsive staff to help resolve minor disputes when needed. Good partnerships with parents exist and they value the service that is provided. Parents are encouraged to take part in the life of the setting. They share the skills and knowledge they have to extend children’s learning through fun activities. The quality of teaching is good, and children make strong progress in their learning and development. The stable and experienced staff know the children well and offer them an engaging learning environment with a good range of stimulating activities. The management team shows a drive to develop the provision. Robust evaluation of practice is carried out, taking into account the views of all staff, as well as families. The manager regularly monitors the provision and ongoing training for staff is valued. Staff and managers have a good understanding of safeguarding procedures and what to do if they had concerns about the welfare of a child. Robust partnerships are in place between the school and the provision to promote consistency in meeting children’s needs. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff sometimes miss opportunities to extend children’s critical thinking, by using effective questioning to encourage them to explore their own ideas and find their own solutions. Leaders have recently started to formally observe staff to monitor practice. Although the process is not yet fully embedded to refine and improve the quality of teaching and learning further.
