Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Successful partnership working exists with parents. Parents state they are extremely happy with the progress their children are making. They feel fully involved in their children’s learning. Children show that they feel very safe, secure and happy. The effective key-person system works extremely well. Staff follow children’s lead in their play. They provide activities which reflect children’s current interests. The environment allows children to initiate their own play indoors or outdoors. They freely make choices about what they want to play with from the well-resourced provision. Staff have a good awareness of how to keep children safe and maintain their well-being. Children are encouraged by staff to persevere as they investigate and experience new things. It is not yet outstanding because: New systems to look at the development of different groups of children are in place. However, these are not yet fully effective in helping staff support all children to make rapid progress. Staff do not consistently sharply focus their teaching on promoting children’s next steps in their learning. This means that children are not always being challenged to make optimum progress and achieve at outstanding levels.
