Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Strong relationships between the staff and parents help to ensure individual children’s needs are successfully met. Regular communication in relation to children’s learning contributes towards parents being fully involved. Staff promote good behaviour and use positive reinforcement and praise. For example, children are praised for being kind to one another. Caring and sensitive staff provide a nurturing environment where children are valued. This helps to foster a strong sense of belonging and community. Staff make effective use of discussions and useful questions when they play alongside children. This encourages children to think, investigate and use language to explain themselves. The manager and her team successfully evaluate their strengths and identify where they could improve. This helps them to improve outcomes for children and their families. It is not yet outstanding because: The procedures used for monitoring staff practice are not yet focused fully on raising the quality of teaching to an even higher level. Staff do not fully analyse the information they collate on children’s achievements sharply enough to be sure that different groups are making equally rapid progress.
