Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The provider uses rigorous systems for the recruitment, induction, supervision and training of staff to ensure their ongoing suitability. Senior management is dedicated to its role and responsibilities. The highly competent manager makes regular assessments on staff during their interactions with children to support their skills and ensure sessions are interesting and exciting for children. Staff use the provider’s robust risk assessments, policies and procedures, which makes a considerable impact on how they support children’s safety, health and well-being. Staff are extremely supportive of children’s healthy lifestyles and encourage parents to provide nutritious meals and snacks. Children have an incredible understanding of what constitutes ’healthy’, and independently choose fruit and vegetables at snack time, showing pride in gaining the stickers awarded for their selections. Children are exceptionally well engaged. They speak confidently and appreciatively about the club and its staff. For example, they state they enjoy ’everything’ that the camp offers. They eagerly recall previous activities and discuss these with their friends. Children’s behaviour is impeccable at all times. They have extremely warm bonds with the staff. Children show immense confidence to speak in group situations. For example, when making puppets for the puppet show, they explained that their polar bear puppet lives in the Arctic, alongside penguins, where it is cold and there is lots of snow.
