Summary of Key findings for Parents:
Staff use additional funding effectively to help close gaps in children’s learning and increase their levels of confidence.
Since the last inspection, the Manager has enhanced the range of resources to support children’s learning about their own and different cultures and religions. Children now compare differences and identify similarities between themselves and others.
All Staff adapt their teaching well to support children who have special educational needs/ or disabilities, and children with English as an additional language.
Staff have a strong focus on preparing children for School. They help children to develop good mathematical and literacy skills. For example, Staff teach children how to form letters correctly and use mathematical language to describe the size of toy bears.
Children have high levels of independence and do things for themselves. For example, older children pour their own drinks and serve their own food at snack time. Younger children follow instructions and help to tidy toys.
The Inspector observed the quality of teaching during activities indoors and outdoors and assessed the impact this has on children’s learning. He viewed Children’s records.
The Inspector spoke with Staff and Children during the Inspection.
The Inspector completed a joint observation with the Manager.
The Inspector held a meeting with the Manager. He looked at relevant documentation, including the Nursery’s self-evaluation and Safeguarding policy. The Inspector viewed evidence of suitability of Staff.
The Inspector spoke to parents during the Inspection, viewed their written feedback, and took account of their views.
What the Setting needs to do to improve further
Extend the support for staff to continually enhance their skills and knowledge and explore further ways to target teaching even more precisely to challenge and motivate children.
Encourage parents to share more information about Children’s knowledge and skills from home when they start attending and throughout their time at Nursery, to better inform planning.
