Staff understand this fully and provide a thoroughly child-centred environment where the atmosphere is calm and nurturing. This supports children to make excellent progress.

They create a ’can do’ culture that empowers staff who are passionate about their work and have very high expectations of themselves. This is reflected in their openness to new ways of working that enable them to plan in the moment to promote children’s learning.
