Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage
The Club operates within the legislation detailed in the EYFS and was recently inspected by Ofsted who assessed the overall standard of the setting as “Good”. The inspector commented that “Children benefit from a high level of care and an environment that is welcoming and well organised” and that “children are able to make independent choices in their play and show good levels of self-confidence”.

The full Ofsted report is available at club or on the Ofsted website:
