Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff regularly observe children and talk to them about their interests. They use this information to plan a varied range of activities children enjoy. Staff place a clear focus on supporting children to be confident and independent at the club. They help children to effectively understand the codes of behaviour in place and how to relate to others. Staff give children the freedom to choose how to spend their time at the club. The leadership team uses self-evaluation well. They actively seek and act on the views of staff, parents and children to help adapt and improve the provision. Parents are kept well informed and are provided with detailed information about the club and its policies and procedures. Staff warmly welcome parents on arrival and make time to share details about the children’s time at the club. It is not yet outstanding because: Opportunities for staff development are not focused sufficiently on improving further the quality of staff’s interactions with children to help them make the most of their time at the club. Partnership working with the host school is not established well enough to ensure that relevant information about children is always shared as promptly as possible.
