Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Staff are welcoming and friendly. They help children to feel safe so they settle quickly into the club and are ready to participate in learning and play. • Staff develop effective partnerships with parents. Staff build strong links between the club, parents and school to ensure continuity in children’s learning and shared information between all parties. • Children enjoy the planned structure and routine of the club and know what is happening next. This helps children to feel comfortable and secure. • Staff supervise children well. They have clear expectations of children’s behaviour. Staff remind children of the rules for safety and this helps to promote a positive atmosphere in the club. • Staff seek the views of parents, children and the school on a regular basis. They are keen to make positive changes as necessary to meet the needs of the children attending. It is not yet outstanding because: • Children are not always made aware of the range of activities available to them. • Staff do not promote children’s independence as well as possible or encourage them to become fully involved in the routines of the setting.
