Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Leaders demonstrate a committed and passionate approach to their work with children. Since the last inspection, they have worked together with the committee and staff to make significant improvements to the provision. • Staff know and understand how to observe the achievements children make in their learning. They use the newly developed systems consistently to identify each child’s next steps and plan for individual children’s learning needs. • Children develop strong relationships with familiar staff and other children. This helps children to feel secure so that they can confidently and actively play, learn and explore. • The pre-school has strong working partnerships with other professionals. This ensures that children with special educational needs and/or disabilities receive prompt support when needed and continuity in their care. • Staff do not always give enough consideration to how younger children can be fully involved when taking part in planned activities. • Some staff are not as highly skilled as others in promoting rich and varied learning experiences that help all children to make as much progress as possible. • Although staff and leaders closely monitor the progress made by children, there is scope for leaders to use this information more astutely to make sure specific groups benefit from highly tailored support that promotes their rapid progress.
