Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager ensures that the environment, both indoors and outdoors, is well equipped to support children’s needs and reflect their interests. Staff skilfully support children to take turns in discussions and to share their ideas. Children enjoy talking about their news from home and school, developing good communication and language skills. Children experience a variety of physical activities using both large and small equipment. For example, while outdoors, they play target-practice games with hoops, play football and use the climbing apparatus. Partnerships with parents are strong. Staff gather valuable information about the needs of the children before they start at the club. This helps to ensure that all children’s needs are effectively met. Staff work closely with other professionals and parents to understand and meet needs of children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. It is not yet outstanding because: The monitoring of staff practice is not being used as effectively as possible to drive forward the quality of the provision for children. Systems for staff’s professional development are not yet highly successful in helping them to achieve outstanding practice.
