Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The manager continually evaluates and monitors the effectiveness of the provision, staff practice and children’s progress. She provides highly effective training and support to enhance staff practice and encourage high-quality outcomes for children. Staff use excellent observation, assessment and planning systems to support children’s learning. There is a strong focus on children’s interests, their achievements and what they need to learn next. As a result, every child makes excellent progress in their learning and development, in relation to their starting point. Staff’s relationships with parents and external agencies are highly successful in supporting inclusion. They provide outstanding support for children whose starting points are lower than those typical for their ages, and for those who have special educational needs or disability. The highly effective key-person system helps staff to provide excellent support to children and their parents. High priority is given to maintaining the exceptionally successful strategies that staff use to engage parents in their children’s learning. Children’s behaviour is excellent and they demonstrate a strong awareness of behavioural expectations. Staff value all children and skilfully encourage their contributions, to enhance children’s personal development and emotional well-being.
