Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding ? Leaders and managers demonstrate exceptional commitment to staff welfare. For example, they adopt strategies in partnership with professional organisations that promote mental health and well-being. As a result, morale is high and staff feel valued and extremely well supported. ? Staff are positive role models. They use well targeted training to skilfully engage children in sharply focused activities which promote health and well-being exceptionally well. For example, all staff are ’Dental Champions’ and motivate children to enjoy brushing their teeth both at pre-school and at home. ? Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and their families benefit from immensely skilled and supportive staff. There are highly effective partnerships in place with an extensive network of professionals. Leaders manage additional funding with great care to maximise the positive impact on children’s outcomes. For instance, through additional staffing, training and resources. ? Partnerships with parents are excellent. Staff work closely with parents to support, guide and share children’s developmental progress with them. Parents give high praise for the pre-school, they feel involved in their child’s learning and know how to extend support at home. For example, staff join parents for meetings and conferences. As a result, children make exceptional progress. ? Staff provide children with wonderful opportunities to explore the world around them. Children enjoy a range of activities and experiences, such as outings, visits to the local primary school and cultural celebrations. They learn how to look after living creatures such as pet snails and fish. Children thrive as they have plentiful opportunities to play and learn outdoors. ? Staff use sharply focused monitoring to identify the impact and quality of teaching across all areas of learning. For example, they use video recordings of staff observations to monitor and evaluate practice and they reflect on the monitoring of children’s progress to constantly strive towards improved outcomes.
