Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Management and staff have high expectations of what children can achieve and plan a wide range of challenging learning experiences. Children make good progress from their initial starting points. Management and staff are good role models. Children’s behaviour is good and they show respect and care for each other. They are tolerant, kind and display very good manners. Partnerships with parents and other providers are good. Management and staff use a wide range of communication methods to exchange information with them. They find out about children’s achievements and use this knowledge to complement their teaching. Parents comment that they value the care their children receive. Management and staff have successfully addressed the recommendations raised at the previous inspection and identified areas for further development to support continuous improvement. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, management and staff do not recognise opportunities to extend children’s mathematical skills. Assessment arrangements are not fully effective in helping staff to precisely monitor the progress made by different groups of children to identify any gaps in learning as promptly as possible.
