Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The managers evaluate the quality of the provision and staff practice to ensure ongoing improvements. They have successfully addressed the actions and recommendations raised for improvement at the previous inspection. Safety is given a very high priority. Hazards to children are identified and minimised, and children are taught how to promote their own safety. The quality of teaching is good and children progress well. Assessments of children’s progress by staff are precise and effectively inform planning to offer children individualised learning experiences. Children’s personal development and well-being are effectively supported by the warm and affectionate care given to them by the nursery staff. Children develop a real sense of belonging. Staff have a good understanding of how to support children who are learning English as an additional language and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff benefit from frequent discussions about their performance, some aspects of the arrangements for monitoring staff practice are not sharply focused on enhancing the quality of teaching to the highest level. Children’s specific next steps for their individual learning are not consistently shared well with parents.
