Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Children thoroughly enjoy the time they spend in this warm, welcoming and fully inclusive environment. Children are extremely confident and are motivated to play, explore and learn. On arrival they immediately become engaged in activities and seek out their friends to share their news. • Children make good progress in their learning and development. The special educational needs coordinator is knowledgeable in her role. Stringent monitoring of children’s progress helps to ensure that any additional support is swiftly secured in order to help children catch up with their peers. • The support offered to children who speak English as an additional language is good. Staff foster effective partnerships with parents and gather familiar words in children’s home languages to aid their understanding. • The manager and her staff team use their knowledge to good effect. They ensure that good standards of care and education are consistently upheld. The manager is passionate about the provision and has accurately identified what improvements they need to make next to further benefit the children attending. • The monitoring of staff practice is in place. However, it is not yet sufficiently focused on raising the quality of teaching and learning to an even higher level. • Occasionally, staff ask too many questions and do not leave enough time for children to think about their answer and express their ideas.
