What is it like to attend this early years setting?

This provision meets requirements Children arrive confidently and happily to the club.

They take off their coats and bags, and put them on their pegs safely. Children are familiar with the club's routines and are well settled. They enjoy a wide range of activities, indoors and outdoors.

For example, children enjoy craft activities, playing board games, using hoops and taking part in ball games. Staff plan different activities for children each day, using children's views and interests. They strive to ensure that children enjoy their time at the club.

These opportunities help children to be curious and engaged in their chosen play and activities. C...hildren have close relationships with staff and engage happily in conversations about their day. Staff participate enthusiastically in children's games and play, offering praise and support when needed.

Children create various models with cardboard using their imaginations. They show sustained levels of focus while they take part in the activities. Children are well behaved and form good friendships with children of differing ages as they take part in crafts and outdoor play.

This helps them to build on their social and physical skills. Staff are deployed effectively to help to ensure that children are safe.

What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?

Staff organise the layout of the toys and activities to make it easy for children to make choices about their play.

For example, staff lead a junk modelling activity in the middle of the room. This allows children of various ages to join in. Alongside this, children access areas for games, crafts, and a quiet area for reading and homework.

Outdoors, children have ample space to run and use resources, which children can access easily. This helps to support children's physical and emotional well-being.The managers have high expectations of children.

They have a clear vision for what they want the children to take away from their time at the club. The managers have a strong focus on promoting children's confidence and happiness. Staff have effective partnerships with the host school and regularly share information about children to support their welfare and well-being.

Children have nutritious snacks in the club, including a selection of cut vegetables and fruit. Mealtimes are filled with happy chatter as children engage with each other and chat about their day. However, staff do not consistently help children to learn about the importance of washing their hands before meals.

Children do not have consistent opportunities to build their independence and promote self-esteem, for example during mealtimes children do not serve themselves. Older children help tidy away by carrying and folding their chairs. However, younger children finish their meals and staff then tidy their chairs away, without encouraging them to try themselves.

Children form strong friendships and enjoy one another's company. They take turns and engage with staff during a junk modelling activity. Children are confident in asking questions and staff are good role models, who encourage children and involve themselves.

This means that children enjoy the activity and can feel supported, where needed. Children are kind and sensitive to each other. Older children play with younger children and explain and support them while taking part in a craft activity with beads.

Partnerships with parents are good. Parents are happy that their children attend the club. They say that their children often do not want to go home.

Parents feel well informed by the communication they receive from the provider. They say that the staff team are very friendly and approachable. Parents feel their children are safe and happy in the club.

The provider and the management team are dedicated to providing good quality out-of-school provision for children. They continually look at ways to improve and enrich the experiences of children in their care. The management team is experienced and established.

Staff feel supported in their roles. However, the managers do not consistently use staff supervision sessions to identify any training and development needs of staff.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.

The managers and staff have a good understanding of their responsibility to safeguard children. They are aware of the signs that could indicate a child is at risk of harm and are clear about the procedures to follow to report any concerns. The managers have secure recruitment procedures to ensure the suitability of any staff working at the club and undertake all the appropriate checks regularly.

Staff complete risk assessments to ensure that the premises and resources used by children are safe. They carry out daily checks before and after the club opens. Staff are deployed effectively to ensure that children are supervised during their time at the club.
