Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff support children’s independence well, encouraging them to be confident and ready for their next stage of learning. Staff provide an interesting range of activities that children enjoy. Overall, children make good progress in their learning. The manager supports the staff well to improve their practice, such as through accessing training to develop their skills. Children behave well. Staff act as positive role models and support children to manage their behaviour. Children have a good understanding of the natural world. For example, they grew fruits and vegetables for snack and they discussed how they had to wait for the tomatoes to turn red before picking them. A good range of resources is readily accessible in both the indoor and outdoor environments to meet children’s interests. It is not yet outstanding because: The management team does not always use the information gained from monitoring groups of children’s progress to quickly identify and implement strategies, in particular to improve boys’ development to help them make even better progress. The management team does not engage parents fully in the self-evaluation process, to identify and target further areas for improvement to benefit children.
