Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff are sensitive to children’s emotional needs and well-being. They display a warm, caring attitude and provide a happy environment for children and their families. There is a well embedded key-person system in place that helps children to form secure emotional attachments. Staff help children’s communication skills; they listen perceptively to children and ask questions to develop their vocabulary. The quality of teaching is good and staff help children to make good progress in their learning. Staff act as good role models, promoting the use of good manners. Children are praised when they do well, contributing towards raising their confidence and self-motivation. Staff are well qualified. They have a good programme of supervision sessions and have attended training in various subjects to help increase their knowledge and skills. Staff support children’s mathematical development as they develop their awareness of shapes, colours and size during daily activities. This helps children acquire skills they need for their next stage in learning and for school. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not fully make the most of opportunities to involve parents and carers in their child’s learning. Occasionally, adult-led activities do not encourage children to express their individuality and creativity.
