Ofsted ratings


The Cloisters after school club was inspected on 29 April 2016.

“Children have lots of fun at the club. They are enthusiastic and animated as they arrive and talk about their day at school. They eagerly explore their play surroundings and enjoy the varied range of activities on offer.”

“Staff observe children during the settling-in process so that they can get to know them very well. They continually review the children’s needs and form close relationships with parents and carers. Staff also have good links with teachers of schools that children attend. This helps them to provide continuity in children’s care and development.”

“Children’s behaviour is good. Children of all ages play cooperatively together. They share resources and happily take turns in team games and activities. Younger children are well supported by staff and the older children help them with tasks and show caring attitudes towards them.”

“The provider implements robust recruitment and vetting procedures which help to ensure that all staff are suitable to care for children.”

“The provider monitors and evaluates the provision. She supports professional development so that staff continually update their skills.”

Mill End after school club was inspected on 23 November 2015.

“Children have high levels of self-esteem. They independently explore the environment and decide what they like to do. Staff are good role models. They join in with children’s play and are consistent in delivering key messages, such as how to treat each other with respect”

“Children are provided with a wide range of good quality resources. These are regularly checked to make sure that they continue to be suitable for children’s use. Staff have created a pictorial book showing resources that are in the storage areas. This helps children to know what is available for them and they confidently ask for favourite items.”

“Children have the opportunity to enjoy fresh air and exercise every day. During fine weather they enjoy visits to a nearby field for team games and physical play.”

“Children freely choose between playing in the well-resourced indoor area and playing outdoors. They particularly enjoy riding bikes outdoors and taking part in group activities, such as dancing and group games.”

“There is a strong partnership with parents. They speak highly of the service provided and say that their children are always asking to come to the setting.
