Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Leaders reflect effectively on the quality of the provision and have a clear vision for the future. They value the contributions that parents and staff make to this process. For example, they made changes to the staff induction process and refined procedures to support transition, such as when children move rooms or go to school. • Leaders and staff carefully monitor the progress that children make. They use children’s assessment information to successfully identify how to help children to achieve success in the next stage of their learning. • All children make good progress in their learning, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities. They work closely with other professionals involved in children’s care to provide effective support and interventions to help children to catch up in their learning and development. Children are well prepared for school. • Children are motivated to play, explore and to make new discoveries. For example, toddlers experiment with chalks to make marks on different surfaces and decide that concrete works better for this than grass. • Staff support children’s emotional security well. Babies and children are happy, secure and form close bonds with the friendly staff. • Children learn to manage their behaviour successfully. For example, they learn useful strategies to help them to manage their feelings in different situations. • Some adult-led activities in ’the piggery’ do not fully capture children’s interests and extend their learning even further to help them to make the best possible progress. • Staff working with pre-school children have not fully considered how to enable children to explore their imaginations freely.
