Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children enjoy their time at the club. They are happy and settled and build very good relationships with staff and children of all ages. Children’s health and well-being are given a high priority. They learn about healthy lifestyles and develop good social skills as they play with each other. They frequently play outdoors and enjoy healthy snacks during rest periods. Younger children’s play and learning records, which staff have chosen to maintain, are well kept. Parents value this information as a record of development and this helps to complement learning in school. Parents are positive about the club and comment on the good opportunities which extend learning beyond the school day. They receive regular information about the achievements of their children. They comment on how well staff meet the needs and interests of their children, supporting their confidence and self-esteem. Children of all ages enjoy their time in this warm, friendly club. There are many activities that enable them to explore their ideas, extend their learning and build on their knowledge and skills. Senior leaders show a strong commitment to bring about change and continually drive improvements. It is not yet outstanding because: The range of resources for older children do not fully sustain their interests. As a result, learning is not always focused on helping children to think at a higher level and increase their problem-solving skills. Parents are not given enough opportunities to be actively involved in evaluating the provision.
