Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good The short breaks provision offers a welcoming, inclusive and stimulating environment for children. Staff know the children well and are attentive to their individual needs. Staff use the provider’s policies, procedures and risk assessments to guide their practice and keep children safe and healthy. Staff have a very good knowledge of the interventions of other professionals, for example, in relation to children’s medical needs. Staff have positive partnerships with parents. They have extensive discussions with them to build an accurate picture of children’s starting points. Staff are competent to make regular observations of children during the session. This supports their knowledge and planning for children’s next steps in learning. Children settle well. They show eagerness to attend and have positive bonds with staff who care for them. Children behave very well. Staff use effective ways to help children understand each other’s differences, have fun and gain independence. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff have not yet developed their partnerships effectively enough with the key staff working with children at other settings, such as nurseries, to build on the ways they know, plan for and extend the targets set for children’s learning elsewhere.
