The OOSC was inspected on the 24th April 2024 and was awarded a 'MET' rating.  
The summary of the findings were: 
  • Staff work well together and evaluate their practice during regular conversations.  The manager and those in a position of governance ensure staff wellbeing.
  • Children benefit from a well-organised outside area and ample opportunity to develop their physical skills.  They relish being outdoors and enjoy the array of activities offered..
  • Staff are genuine in their interactions with children.  They value children's views, ideas and opinions and enjoy spending time with them.  Staff seek out quieter children and check they are happy.
  • Children enjoy well-planned activities that follow their learning at the host school, for example growth and life cycles.
  • Older and younger children form strong attachments through an effective buddy system.
  • There are strong partnerships between the staff and the host school.  This provides the children and families with continuity of care.
