Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Managers support staff well and they work together to set clear priorities for future development. The day-to-day organisation of the club is well organised and efficient. Staff follow secure procedures and understand their responsibility to keep children safe. Children have positive relationships with the warm and caring staff team. They settle well, develop a positive sense of belonging and make friends easily. Children behave well, are polite and consider each other’s needs as they play. Staff provide a varied range of good-quality resources to support children in stimulating and challenging activities. Children engage wholeheartedly in creative play activities. Staff support children well in developing their literacy skills. For example, they encourage children to practise writing numbers, letters and their own name, to build on what they learn at school. Parents are happy with the club. They state that their children enjoy attending and have good relationships with the staff. Staff share daily information with parents about their children’s experiences. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not work as closely with schools to make sure they fully complement children’s experiences and learning. Managers do not make the best use of professional development opportunities to evaluate staff performance and focus on raising the quality of practice even higher.
