Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • The manager and her team have worked hard to bring about positive changes to the club. All actions and recommendations raised previously have been fully addressed. The manager maintains robust documentation and holds detailed records regarding the suitability of staff.

• Staff work effectively with teaching professionals from the host school. They share observations of children's achievements and work collaboratively in helping children reach their identified targets. Children are encouraged to make contributions to the planning of activities.

This helps to ensure that activities complement children's learning in school and reflect their interests... and individual needs. • Children demonstrate good levels of confidence through the wide range of activities and experiences that staff provide. Children say that they thoroughly enjoy their time at the club and look forward to attending.

• Children behave very well. Staff are consistent in their approach, offering gentle reminders to help children understand what is expected of them. Children develop strong friendships and good social skills.

Staff encourage children to listen to one another, share and take turns. It is not yet outstanding because: • The provider has not yet implemented opportunities for staff to build further on their already good teaching skills. • Occasionally, during adult-led activities, children are not fully supported in making spontaneous and independent decisions during their play.
