Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is inadequate • The arrangements for recording and reporting safeguarding concerns are poor. Despite the manager being aware of the procedures to follow, she has failed to report significant concerns about a child’s welfare. • Systems for monitoring children’s accidents and injuries sustained away from the setting are not robust. Staff do not gather sufficient information to enable them to monitor effectively and make informed decisions about whether further action is required to keep children safe. • The manager and staff have failed to ensure that the premises are secure at all times. An external door is left open while children attend a forest school session, meaning that during this time unauthorised people can freely access the nursery. It has the following strengths • As part of the manager’s review of the effectiveness of the provision, staff receive frequent feedback on their performance in relation to the quality of the teaching and learning. The manager identifies and promptly provides additional coaching and training to increase staff’s skills and expertise. As a result, children are making good progress. • Staff are committed and motivated to provide children with an enjoyable and exciting range of activities that enthuse children’s interests. Children are confident communicators and independent learners. • Staff make good use of the indoor and outdoor environment. Children have lots of opportunities to develop their physical skills and learn about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle through the food they are offered and the activities they participate in.
