Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff offer a welcoming and interesting environment for children. The quality of staff coaching and instruction, particularly in helping children learn sports-based skills, is good. Children learn new skills, engage happily and behave very well. Children enjoy their time at the holiday club. They benefit from a range of activities, indoors and outdoors, and are confident to join in. They play cooperatively with their peers and the older children attending. Children have warm bonds with staff. Staff use the provider’s policies, procedures and risk assessments closely to securely guide their practice, keep children safe and support their well-being. Staff establish partnerships with parents well. Parents are positive about the convenience of the club and how much children enjoy the activities offered. Staff value parental views. For example, following feedback, staff introduced new sessions such as ’Chillax’ and drama classes to further children’s enjoyment and opportunities for rest. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not find out as much as possible about what children want to do, to help them plan more effectively for their interests when they start and during their time at the setting. Staff sometimes miss opportunities to support children when starting new tasks, to help them consider their methods and test out their ideas about how to do things.
