Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager and staff make effective use of self-evaluation. They seek the views of parents, children and staff to help identify areas of their practice to improve. For example, parents are keen for the staff to develop an outside play area. There are effective links with local schools and other settings that children attend. Staff share information about children’s progress and achievements, which helps to support continuity in their learning and care. Children are confident, happy and settled. They have good levels of emotional well-being and form warm, caring and trusting relationships with staff and other children. There are good partnerships with other professionals, which help staff to support children with special educational needs or disability effectively. Children make good progress and develop a good range of skills to prepare them for their future learning. For example, staff provide stimulating and engaging activities which reflect children’s interests and support the next steps in their learning effectively. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently extend children’s understanding and use of mathematical concepts. Staff do not provide children with a wide range of opportunities to help them develop and extend their early reading skills.
