Summary of key findings for parents

They consider well the priorities for each child’s development and make plans to meet these using their strong knowledge of children’s interests. Staff offer parents good opportunities to be involved in their children’s learning and to carry on learning at home. They have established effective communication systems which allow a continual two-way sharing of information and continuity for children. Children make good progress from their starting points. Where children achieve below the typical outcomes for their ages, appropriate action is taken to ensure children receive extra support. The staff team works well with other professionals to help children progress towards their goals. Staff promote healthy practices well. Children enjoy activities which help them to develop positive attitudes to healthy foods, such as planting vegetables. The manager has implemented effective strategies to check children’s progress. She notes areas of learning which are weaker and makes changes to improve outcomes. It is not yet outstanding because: The manager monitors staff practice. However, she does not use rigorous strategies to evaluate teaching and support staff to develop their skills even further. Staff promote diversity well.
