Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The management team is committed to improving outcomes for children. They have taken prompt and effective steps to address the actions raised at the last inspection. Outcomes for children are now good. Staff provide a stimulating and well-resourced environment indoors and outside. Children have access to a wide range of resources that promotes their curiosity and enthusiasm to learn. They develop their confidence and self-esteem as they independently choose from the variety of resources available to them. Staff support children’s mathematical skills effectively. They promote children’s understanding of shapes, colours and numbers in purposefully planned play activities. Staff place a high priority on keeping children safe. They carry out thorough checks of the premises daily and reduce or remove any hazards to children’s safety. Children develop good social skills. Staff actively support children to be considerate of each other’s feelings and support them to understand the effects their actions can have on others. Staff encourage children to have their own opinions and to appreciate each other’s views. Children have many opportunities to experience fresh air and physical exercise. They have daily access to the garden, climb large play equipment and dance to music. This contributes to their good health and physical well-being. It is not yet outstanding because: The management team’s professional development plans for staff are not yet sharply focused enough to achieve and maintain an even higher quality of teaching. Staff sometimes miss opportunities to build on children’s speaking skills further.
