Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Managers and practitioners have worked hard to improve the provision. They demonstrate commitment to achieving the highest standards. The manager makes sure that practitioners complete all mandatory training. Children’s safety is promoted well. Information that helps practitioners to safeguard children’s welfare is carefully recorded before children begin to attend the club. Confidential information is stored securely and shared appropriately. Well-established routines help to promote children’s well-being. Children arrive at the after-school club from the Reception class accompanied by a member of school staff. Practitioners in school and the club routinely share important information. The club attendance register is accurately maintained. The key-person system is effective. Children know who their key person is because : practitioners plan activities that involve them working in key-group teams. Parents know who their child’s key person is because this is clearly communicated. Managers provide supportive supervision for practitioners. This helps everyone to understand their responsibilities and to improve their skills and knowledge. It is not yet outstanding because: On occasion, practitioners do not encourage children to try out their own ideas in their play. The policy for administering medicines to children is not communicated clearly enough to parents.
