Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • Leadership is inspirational. An extremely dedicated team of staff plan an exciting and highly stimulating environment in which children flourish. Children display exceptionally high levels of well-being as they eagerly explore, discover and learn. Staff are excellent role models for children’s own positive and respectful behaviour. • Children make excellent progress in their learning, including children with special educational needs and/or disabilities and those who speak English as an additional language. Meticulous monitoring and rigorous assessment ensure all children receive highly appropriate and meaningful support. Interventions are swiftly and successfully put into place to prevent children from falling behind their peers. • Children’s physical skills are enhanced with an excellent programme of planned physical activity to promote strength, coordination and health. For example, children dance, play football and enjoy plenty of challenging exercise in the inspirational outdoor environment. • Children are highly imaginative as they play. For example, they design and build complex structures with large wooden bricks. They incorporate other resources, such as dolls, to enhance their game and develop stories. • Parents are full of praise for the outstanding care their children receive. For example, they describe how the staff go ’above and beyond’ to ensure their children are happy and learning.
