Summary of key findings for parents

This is a provision that requires improvement • The manager and staff have not fully considered how to identify and manage possible risks to children in relation to the security of the premises. • Staff do not consistently find out about children’s individual interests and experiences at school to tailor their care in the club. • Staff take time to organise the play environment, which means this is not always set up for play when children first arrive in the setting. As a result, children have to sit and wait for quite some time before this is ready for play. It has the following strengths • Children are relaxed and happy and say they enjoy their time at the club. Staff have warm and positive relationships with them. Children behave well and demonstrate care and respect for each other. They socialise with their friends and learn to support those younger than themselves. • Staff provide children with plenty of opportunities to develop their good health and physical development. Children benefit from the freedom of playing outdoors after school in the playground. Here they enjoy running, playing ball games and swinging hoops around their hips. • The providers and manager have a good understanding of their roles. They provide effective training and support for staff to help them update their knowledge and develop their skills. • Parents are positive about the club’s facilities. They state that they value the service and feel reassured that their children are safe and have fun.
