Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff place high emphasis on developing children’s communication and language skills. They are well qualified and use their teaching skills well to help children build up and extend their vocabulary. Strong partnerships with the host school and other local schools ensures a consistent and complementary approach to supporting children’s learning. Parents take a keen and active part in their children’s learning. Staff engage with parents in a number of ways and encourage them to keep up to date with the progress their children make. Overall, the manager reviews the provision well, as part of her leadership role. Clear future plans show how improvements aim to support children’s outcomes. Children’s behaviour is good. Staff help children to recognise and understand the rules for being together with others, such as waiting for a turn or sharing toys and equipment. It is not yet outstanding because: Some group-time activities provided for two-year-old children are not precisely focused on their stage of development and level of understanding. Staff have not fully explored ways in, which children can experiment with making marks as part of their play to raise their achievements in literacy to a higher level.
