Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children show regard for staff and each other and are polite and respectful. The older children help younger ones and they play together harmoniously. Partnerships with parents are good. Parental feedback is very positive. They state that they value the service the club offers to them. Disabled children and those with special educational needs are well supported as staff plan to meet their individual needs. Staff also communicate with school staff and parents regularly to monitor children’s well-being. Children are consulted and contribute towards the planning of activities and choosing of new resources. This enables them to follow their interests and control their play. Therefore, children of all ages and stages of development enjoy their time at the club. Staff are qualified to varying levels, and all receive good support from the management team to enhance their skills and knowledge. Managers observe the quality of practice regularly to enhance professional development opportunities. Staff help children to develop a good sense of their own safety. There are consistent rules and boundaries so children clearly understand where they can play, and to stay in sight of adults. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always encourage children to be independent in managing their own care needs. The manager and staff do not gain detailed information from the host school to help support children’s developing skills further at the club.
