Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The newly appointed manager brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role. She is highly qualified, enthusiastic and motivated to lead the staff team and to drive further improvement. She inspires confidence and is securing the trust of other leaders and staff. All children are on track to achieve a good level of development at the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage. The majority of children are making expected levels of progress and several children make good progress and have skills and abilities above those expected for their age. Leaders effectively track the progress of children. Effective action planning and the leaders determined focus on key priorities has resulted in an established programme of continuous improvement. Staff know the children well. They skilfully plan their next steps in learning and provide good quality teaching. Children are well cared for in the welcoming and child-friendly environment. They are becoming increasingly confident, inquisitive and eager learners. Parents are actively involved in their children’s learning and development. They contribute to their child’s learning journey and their views and comments are incorporated into the successful planning of activities and development assessments. It is not yet outstanding because: Opportunities to promote children’s mathematical learning outside are not always maximised. Leaders and staff have yet to build effective relationships with all schools in the area to ensure that the children are confident and secure as they move on in their education.
