Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children are motivated to do things for themselves. Staff have clear expectations and well-established care routines that help to empower children to be independent. Staff skilfully support children’s developing reading skills. Effective partnerships with schools have had a positive impact on the quality of literacy teaching. Pre-school children particularly benefit from regular, high-quality experiences that help to prepare them for school. Staff use a range of good quality questions to help children to think and learn. Children make good progress from when they begin to attend. Staff keep parents well informed about children’s progress and they guide parents to help children to continue their learning at home. Managers gather the views and expertise of others, including the local authority, to contribute to their effective self-evaluation. They make changes that benefit children. It is not yet outstanding because: The monitoring that managers undertake does not focus precisely on developing the quality of teaching and learning to an outstanding level. At times, staff do not recognise that children, who learn through active play, need more space to engage in physical play experiences.
