Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The quality of teaching is highly effective and all children make excellent progress in their learning in relation to their starting points. Staff meticulously observe children and provide activities that are skilfully adapted to meet their individual learning needs. Children thrive in an extremely positive and safe learning environment. For example, children are reminded to hold scissors safely when walking and to take part in risk assessments to help them to learn how to identify hazards. An exemplary key-person system nurtures children’s well-being and helps them to form very strong emotional attachments. Children’s behaviour is superb. Staff give consistent guidance, set an excellent example and help children to develop respect and empathy for others. Outstanding partnerships with parents and other professionals ensure that additional support and interventions are quickly secured, to make sure that children at risk of falling behind succeed. Parents are very well supported to promote their children’s learning and to share achievements from home to provide excellent consistency. Staff benefit from high-quality training and professional coaching that enables them to meet children’s individual needs very successfully. For example, staff in the toddler and baby rooms have adapted teaching methods and planning to enhance activities and opportunities provided for younger children.
