Summary of key findings for parents

This is a provision that requires improvement • Although the management has started to put systems in place to monitor and coach staff practice, these are not yet fully embedded. Systems do not accurately identify areas to develop in regard to staff effectiveness or precisely target their individual training needs. • The management has put systems in place for analysing the progress that different groups of children make. However, these systems are not yet fully effective in addressing weaknesses in the provision and ensuring children receive consistently high support. • Staff do not always make the best use of the space available to the children. For example, pre-school children do not always have sufficient indoor space available to become fully independent and attempt small tasks. It has the following strengths • Children have daily opportunities to play and learn outdoors to help support their overall well-being. They dig for treasure and balance on a tyre obstacle. • Parents are happy with the provision. They comment about the welcoming attitude of staff and the ongoing communication they have about their children’s learning and development. • Children make good progress from their starting points, including those who speak English as an additional language. They gain good communication and social skills which are vital for their next stage of education, including their move to school.
