Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding Leaders have extremely high aspirations for the pre-school. The chair of trustees is particularly instrumental in addressing weaknesses and planning rigorously for future improvement. For example, attending recent training in areas including leadership and the role of trustees has had an extremely positive impact on the pace of improvement. Partnerships with parents are outstanding. Parents are extremely positive about the pre-school’s electronic tool to capture details of children’s learning and they value being kept up to date. Parents are successfully engaged in observing their children’s learning online and welcome opportunities to add their own contributions. Staff are highly skilled in their interactions with children. Staff know exactly where children need support and skilfully extend children’s learning in their self-chosen play. Leaders rigorously monitor children’s progress and are highly alert to any individual or groups of children at risk of falling behind. Highly effective programmes of support help children to catch up. Children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities make excellent progress from their starting points. Settling-in processes are highly effective. Staff are very sensitive to children’s emotional needs and adapt routines accordingly. They remain close by to offer reassurance and quickly acknowledge children’s personal efforts and achievements.
