Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The experienced manager leads her team well. She takes positive steps to ensure that all staff work together to create a stimulating environment for children after their day at school. Staff have individual meetings with the manager to help identify their training needs. They also discuss the ongoing improvements of the club. Staff are warm and caring. They are popular with the children, who build strong emotional attachments with them. The manager and some of her senior staff team are well qualified. They have a wealth of experience in working with children. Staff effectively help children to have good experiences at the club. For example, children have fun using head torches and confidently show staff and visitors how far they can see in the dark. Staff, children and parents work together to discuss and implement the club’s behaviour management expectations. Staff are positive role models and use effective strategies, such as encouraging children to vote for the star of the week. This helps children to build friendships with each other and to behave well. Parents are very complimentary about the quality of the experiences offered to their children. They are confident that their children are well cared for by the friendly staff. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not make the strongest possible links with teachers in the school to share and build on children’s ongoing changing care and development needs.
