OFSTED Registration and Inspections

OFSTED Comments

“The qualified staff understand how children learn through well-planned, good quality play experiences. They use a range of teaching methods to support children's learning and to build on the skills they have acquired in school.”


“Staff have developed strong bonds with the children. As a result, children have very good personal and social skills. The buddy system helps young children to feel valued because older children are excellent role models and help them to settle at the club. “ 

“Staff support children in writing the rules of the club so they are fully aware of what is expected of them. As a result, children learn to take responsibility and their behaviour is good. “ 

“Staff have a good understanding of safeguarding issues. Consequently, children are safeguarded and their well-being is promoted to a good level. Robust safeguarding and recruitment procedures help to ensure all adults working with the children are suitable to do so.”


“The well-qualified, motivated staff team and good quality resources promote children's learning through play to a very good level. Staff are aware of the individual needs, likes and dislikes of the children in their care. They organise the activities and groups of children to ensure that they all feel secure and thrive in this busy, well-organised club. As a result, children develop a very positive attitude, which supports them in being successful in their future learning in school.”
