Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff make accurate and consistent assessments of children’s progress and take into account what parents know about their children. Staff actively involve parents in continuing learning at home and share relevant information with them. Children make good progress in their learning. They concentrate well and develop strong listening skills. Children form strong emotional bonds with staff. They are confident, happy and ready to learn. Children learn to value and respect people who are different from themselves. They develop a strong understanding of what is acceptable behaviour. Children know the rules of the setting and show good social skills. Staff form effective partnerships with agencies and other professionals. They work closely together to provide consistent care and support for children. Leaders and staff monitor children’s progress well to narrow any gaps in learning. They evaluate the provision and make changes to improve children’s experiences. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not fully extend ways to build on children’s problem-solving skills and develop their mathematical understanding fully. Occasionally, staff miss opportunities to encourage younger children to manage everyday routines and tasks for themselves so they learn to become even more independent.
