Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager has taken positive steps to address the actions raised at the last inspection. She has reviewed the procedures used to show how all staff suitability checks are obtained and ensures that they are easily available. Observations of staff practice and one-to-one meetings to discuss training needs are now routinely carried out. Children say that the staff are nice to them. They also say that they like taking part in the activities that are available. For example, they enjoy making items from craft materials, painting and playing hide and seek outdoors. Children behave very well. Staff ensure children receive consistent messages about behaviour and help them to understand appropriate rules and expectations. Children are supported well to develop their independence skills. They willingly volunteer to be the helper of the day. Children take part in a variety of tasks, such as helping to prepare for mealtimes. This helps to raise children’s confidence and contributes to them feeling a valued member of the club. Parents spoken to during the inspection were very complimentary about the manager and her staff. They say that their children enjoy coming to the club and are well cared for. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always promptly obtain information from parents about their child’s interests before they begin at the club, in order to reflect these in the early planning. Staff do not make the strongest possible links with teachers in the school to share and build on children’s current and ongoing care and development needs.
