Ofsted Inspector 2019
Staff have high expectations of children's achievements.  They skilfully know when to allow children to try things for themselves and when to step in to offer support and guidance.  All children are keen to join in with the enjoyable and challenging activities. Children are supported well to develop a growing awareness of how to keep themselves healthy and manage reasonable risks. Staff provide them with rich opportunities to gain practical skills. Staff take time to find out about childen's specific needs and often draw on the expertise of parents and outside professionals.  In particular, this helps them to offer carefully tailored support to meet the needs of children with special educational needs and / or disabilities.
