Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The management team has high expectations for the children’s enjoyment and achievement during their time in the setting. It sets a clear direction for future improvements and staff work well as a team. Children achieve well in all aspects of their learning and development. They are prepared well for their future learning, including starting school. Staff accurately assess children’s levels of achievement. They identify the next steps children need to reach and plan imaginative activities to help them. Staff make good links with other settings that children attend to support continuity in their development. Relationships with parents are strong. Staff keep them well informed about their children’s progress and provide useful support and guidance when required. Parents are very appreciative of the warm and caring greeting that children receive every day. Children are very well behaved and thoughtful. Staff successfully help them to develop independence, confidence and self-awareness. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff’s professional development is not yet sharply focused on raising the quality of teaching. The management team does not fully compare the progress made by different groups of children to ensure that all achieve at the highest possible level.
