Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The well-qualified staff team work together well. They are all aware of their roles and responsibilities. This helps to ensure the day-to-day running of the club is efficient. The key-person system is good. Children form secure emotional attachments with their key persons. They know children’s individual needs well and this helps to build their confidence and self-esteem. The staff provide a stimulating environment with a wide range of activities. Children display high levels of concentration as they engage in self-chosen play. The staff consistently involve children in their evaluations of the activities they offer. This helps to ensure the activities continue to interest and challenge all children. Staff help children to settle well at the club. They offer children a flexible settling-in process matched to how they are settling at school. Key persons spend time with each child, helping them to complete a book showing their interests, needs and people who are special to them. It is not yet outstanding because: Although systems to monitor staff performance are in place, these are not rigorous enough to provide a sharp focus on enhancing staff’s knowledge and practice to the highest levels. Staff do not always provide children with opportunities to gain information on the themes they are covering, to help ignite children’s imagination and creativity as they take part in adult-planned activities.
