Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The leadership team’s drive to raise achievements for children is evident in its thorough approach to self-evaluation and improvement. For instance, new initiatives are carefully planned, monitored thoroughly and applied professionally by all staff. Managers are clearly accountable for any additional funding they receive. Staff are particularly skilled in teaching children how to keep themselves safe as they explore outdoors and learn about the world around them. For instance, children attending the pre-school and holiday clubs learn to saw wood and make fires. They learn how to behave responsibly with equipment and to protect each other. Staff create stunning and dynamic play environments. Children are quickly captivated by new possibilities for learning. Fully absorbed, they have time to investigate, create and develop imaginative games together and independently. Children develop self-confidence and a willingness to try new activities and explore new ideas. They listen attentively, learn to respect rules and work cooperatively. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently use opportunities that arise to build on children’s enthusiasm for activities and extend their mathematical skills. Staff do not consistently use their professional curiosity and knowledge precisely enough to identify why some children are not following typical rates of development or how they can help children make more-rapid progress.
