Summary of key findings for parents
The provision is good • The providers and staff provide a welcoming and friendly club for all children after their busy day at school. They offer a wide range of activities that follows children’s interests successfully and that they enjoy. Staff regularly share information with teachers and plan well to complement children’s learning in school. • The providers work in effective partnership with the school. Leaders in the school show confidence in the providers and staff operate and manage the club. Staff have established clear links with the safeguarding lead and teachers in the school and share information that effectively supports children’s good health and welfare. • Self-evaluation is accurate. The providers seek the views of parents and consider these when identifying further areas to improve upon that benefit the families who use the club. Children have a strong say in how staff operate the club. They share their views, such as through the children’s council to support improvements. It is not yet outstanding because: • Staff sometimes miss opportunities to provide a broader range of activities to support those children who prefer playing outdoors more consistently. • Children sit for long periods at snack time and at times become restless.
