Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Leaders and staff have made good improvements since the last inspection. They have used the support from other professionals and developed detailed improvement plans. Leaders and staff have successfully used their evaluations to plan quality learning experiences to enable children to make good progress in their learning. • Leaders and staff support children and their families very well. They work in effective partnerships with other professionals to support children’s specialist care, welfare and learning needs. • Partnerships with parents are strong. Parents have constant access to children’s development records and regularly share information with their child’s key person. • Children behave well. Staff are caring and are good role models. They take every opportunity to praise children’s positive behaviour. Children are polite and respectful to each other. They demonstrate thoughtfulness for others’ needs and share toys well. Babies and young children develop close, affectionate relationships with staff and feel secure. It is not yet outstanding because: • Leaders and staff do not use their assessment systems as well as possible, to precisely monitor children’s progress and rapidly close any gaps in their learning. • Leaders do not facilitate staff as well as they could to develop some areas of their expertise to improve children’s outcomes even further.
