Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Staff develop strong relationships with parents. They discuss what their children’s interests are at home so that these can be provided at the club. This helps new children to settle in quickly. Staff talk with parents during pick-up times so that they are fully informed about the activities their children have enjoyed. • Staff foster strong partnerships with various school staff. They identify what other settings are working on with each individual child, and use this information to provide activities that complement children’s learning at the club. This helps staff to support children’s continual readiness for school well. • Staff praise children throughout the session for their achievements. Children have developed their own behaviour rules for the club, which are displayed clearly, as a reminder. Staff are warm and caring towards all children. This helps children to develop strong emotional attachments and to develop friendships with one another. • The management seeks the views of staff, children and their parents. This helps to evaluate the provision and identify targets for further improvement. • At times, staff do not make the most of opportunities to deepen children’s thinking and ideas, such as during creative play. • Staff do not consistently build on enhancing children’s understanding about the importance of healthy eating.
