Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Relationships between staff and children are strong. Children are relaxed and have fun. They communicate confidently with staff and each other. Staff listen to children’s views and respond to their ideas. This helps them provide interesting activities and toys which keep children well occupied and engaged. The well-organised key-person system helps to ensure the needs of the youngest children are consistently met. Staff make good use of their observations and knowledge of each child to provide them with good levels of support. Staff promote children’s physical skills well. They make good use of the playground and outdoor spaces to provide opportunities for children to enjoy sports and play vigorously. Good links with the headteacher and other staff within the host school help to ensure that children are safeguarded and that their individual needs are known and met. The provider monitors the temporary manager closely and offers good support to ensure the club operates effectively and continues to improve. It is not yet outstanding because: Professional development opportunities for staff are not broad or astutely targeted towards ways that will help every individual build on their practice and deliver the highest quality provision for children. At times, staff do too much for the children. They do not always challenge and promote the highest levels of personal independence, particularly during snack time.
