Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager provides effective support to staff. For example, she holds regular meetings to discuss their practice and identify their training needs. Staff build on their skills and knowledge to help improve outcomes for children. Partnerships with parents are strong and support a consistent approach. For example, parents have frequent opportunities to discuss their children’s progress, including their achievements at home. Staff gain information from parents about what children know and can do when they first start. This helps to establish secure starting points to plan children’s future learning experiences. Staff have a good knowledge of how children learn and of what they can achieve, including those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. They regularly observe children’s development and assess their progress to help accurately plan next steps in learning. All children make good progress. Children behave impeccably. They form excellent relationships with their key person, which helps to support high levels of emotional well-being. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, some staff do not consistently use effective questioning to help extend children’s learning even further. Sometimes, children do not have a wide range of opportunities to further develop their creativity and imagination.
