Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Leaders and staff analyse data of children’s achievements carefully to identify any weaknesses in children’s learning. For example, they have used information from their monitoring to extend resources to increase children’s interest in pre-writing activities to support children to make good progress. Staff have a good understanding of children’s abilities and interests. They use this knowledge effectively to plan a wide range of engaging activities which entices children to enthusiastically explore and investigate. Children behave well and staff are good role models. For example, they help children understand how to take turns, share and be kind and courteous to others through having clear expectations and boundaries. Parents are fully informed of their children’s learning in the setting. Staff support parents with ideas on how they can support learning further at home. For example, they inform parents with suggestions for discussion at home related to the book of the week. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, staff complete simple tasks for children rather than encouraging them to do things for themselves to encourage their independence skills. Leaders and staff gather information from parents on children’s achievements at home. However, some staff miss the opportunity to make the best use of this to support them in developing children’s next steps in learning.
