What Did Ofsted Say About Us…

OUTSTANDING!!

“The provider and the manager are passionate about providing high quality out-of school care and have made significant improvements since the last inspection. The keyperson system is now highly effective and enables staff to provide excellent support that is precisely tailored to the needs of individual children and their families.”

 “Children take part with great enthusiasm in a very wide range of interesting activities. They thoroughly enjoy regular visits from a dance teacher, who introduces them to a variety of dances from different parts of the world.”
 “Staff provide children with an excellent balance of opportunities for free play and some planned activities. They work closely with children throughout the session, supporting them very effectively as they play. Children choose whether to play indoors or outside throughout the year.”
“Children quickly learn to take responsibility for their own safety. They understand why they have to wear high-visibility jackets when they are playing outside, so that staff can easily see them in the extensive outdoor area. They learn to put their name label in the correct place to indicate whether they have chosen to stay indoors or to play outside.”
 “The manager works very closely with her large team of staff, who have a wide range of experience and qualifications. The manager conducts monthly supervision meetings with every member of staff. She works with them to set targets for their work each month. This helps them to focus on enhancing their performance so that they can support children’s play and learning even more effectively.”
 “Partnership working with the school is excellent. Staff share detailed information about children’s welfare and their activities in the club with the teachers in the Reception Year. They are fully aware of children’s next steps in learning in school and provide play opportunities that support children’s progress in school very effectively.”
