In­spec­tors’ good re­port for im­prov­ing pre-school

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

The group scored ‘Good’ rat­ings across the board – ef­fec­tive­ness of the lead­er­ship and man­age­ment’, qual­ity of teach­ing, learn­ing and as­sess­ment, per­sonal devel­op­ment, be­hav­iour and wel­fare’, and out­comes for chil­dren. Cater­ing to chil­dren aged two years to three, the playgroup is based at the Cricket Pav­il­lion, near Bow­stridge Lane. The in­spec­tion was car­ried on March 23 this year, and in the sum­mary re­port man­agers were ruled to have ‘strong sys­tems for self-eval­u­a­tion, per­for­mance man­age­ment, and train­ing to im­prove the pro­vi­sion and staff prac­tice. They have raised stan­dards in prac­tice since the last in­spec­tion and en­able chil­dren to make good progress in their learn­ing’.

The re­port also reads: “Chil­dren par­tic­i­pate in a wide range of stim­u­lat­ing ac­tiv­i­ties. They develop good so­cial, phys­i­cal and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills, in­clud­ing those who are learn­ing English as an ad­di­tional lan­guage. Chil­dren are well pre­pared for the next stages of their learn­ing.”

It was not judged to be out­stand­ing yet be­cause ‘staff do not con­sis­tently re­flect on all as­pects of chil­dren’s in­di­vid­ual back­grounds or home lives in their play, to help them make fur­ther progress’.

Car­rie Swal­low, one of the lead­ers, said: “We are de­lighted to get our ‘Good’ grade back. The team work very hard to en­sure the playgroup is the best it can be, en­sur­ing a happy, safe en­vi­ron­ment for all.”
