Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Staff provide very good one-to-one support for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). They make very good use of signing to help develop children's communication skills. • There is a strong focus on ensuring that staff's safeguarding knowledge is up to date.

The managers regularly review staff's understanding of a range of safeguarding matters, which helps to promote children's welfare. • The majority of the time, children's behaviour is very good. They share well, take turns and willingly help each other to complete tasks.

However, at times in the afternoon, some children do not manage disputes well and run around in...doors chasing each other. Some staff do not recognise their need to channel children's energy more appropriately or step in to address this promptly. • Staff know children well.

They make effective use of what they know about individual children to plan for what the children need to learn next. Staff make good use of additional funding to help all groups of children achieve well. For example, they purchase information and story books from children's home countries to help develop children's sense of personal identity.

• Staff's planning for children's outdoor play and learning is not fully developed to enable children to consistently build on their skills, especially for those who prefer to learn outdoors. • Staff help children to celebrate family events and show interest in the significant people in each child's life. For example, they create photograph books for each child, containing pictures of their family, which children can access at any time in the reading area.
