Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good ? Staff support children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) particularly well. They are proactive in developing strong partnerships with a wide range of other professionals. This helps to promote a shared and consistent approach to children’s learning and development. ? The setting has very strong links with the primary school on site, and staff support children’s well-being through their transition to school extremely well. For example, they have created a photograph book, showing children the story of a first day at school, allowing children to discuss their feelings and understanding with staff. ? Partnerships with parents are strong and they speak highly of the pre-school and staff team. Parents feel involved with their children’s learning. ? Staff teach children mathematics well. For example, they encourage them to think about size and count objects, and use numbers throughout their play. ? Staff observe and assess children’s development effectively. Children are keen, motivated learners and make good progress. ?
