Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Leaders provide staff with a wide range of training and professional support. This results in high quality teaching and learning experiences for children that thoroughly interest and engage them. Children are now making good progress as a result. Children show great determination and perseverance. They are keen to find solutions to problems and learn new skills; such as completing a puzzle, and mastering the use of tweezers and scissors. This prepares them well for school. Strong partnership working with parents and other professionals are in place. This ensures children, in particular those with additional needs, get the support and intervention required early on, and that this continues through to school. Leaders and staff are alert to signs that suggest a child’s welfare or safety may be a risk, including exposure to extreme views and beliefs. They share concerns with parents and other professionals appropriately. This ensures families get the support and intervention they need to promote children’s safety and well-being. It is not yet outstanding because: Leaders did not understand the requirement to inform Ofsted of changes to the committee. This means Ofsted have been unable to carry out the required checks to determine the committee member’s suitability for their role. Immediate action has been taken. There is no impact on children’s safety and well-being. Processes for ensuring the checks staff make on children’s learning and development are accurate, are not fully developed. The progress of groups of children is not sufficiently monitored. This does not ensure all staff know precisely where to target their teaching to help all children reach their full potential, particularly the most able.
