Summary of key findings for parents
The provision is good • The manager leads her team of staff effectively. Together they reflect on the quality of the provision and demonstrate a strong commitment to making changes and continuous improvements. The manager accurately identifies strengths and sets ambitious targets for future development. • Children are happy and establish positive relationships with staff and their peers. Staff are friendly and caring in their interactions with children and nurture their emotional well-being successfully. • Partnerships with parents are strong. Staff effectively engage parents in their children’s learning and share a wealth of information regularly. For example, they translate written communication and parents positively comment on the home-learning packs. Furthermore, parents praise the advice from staff to support their children’s learning and development effectively, such as tips on toilet training and school readiness. • Staff build close links with external professionals and share strategies to effectively meet children’s care and learning needs. They provide good support for children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. It is not yet outstanding because: • Occasionally, staff do not fully extend the level of challenge in children’s learning, particularly for the most able children to help them make more rapid progress. • The manager does not yet monitor the progress of different groups of children. For example, she does not evaluate the impact of additional funding on children’s progress. • The manager’s monitoring of staff performance does not precisely identify how staff can raise the quality of their teaching practice even further.
