The Cloisters after school club was inspected on 29th 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.”
