Youngsters are engaged and challenged at a rural children’s club based at an infant school.
That’s the opinion of Ofsted inspector Sadie Corbett who has just rated Scissett Kids’ Club as Good.
She said: “Staff provide a range of challenging activities which supports children to make good progress in their learning and development.
“Activities are planned to provide children with a range of learning opportunities and challenge, although children can also choose what they wish to play with to enable them to initiate their own learning.
“There is particular emphasis on children’s personal, social and emotional needs, especially through the settling-in process.
“Children enjoy the good opportunities to experience daily outdoor activities which develops their emerging understanding of the need for physical exercise and promotes healthy lifestyles.
“Children’s learning and development is supported through strong links and partnership working with the host school.“
The inspector added that to improve the club should strengthen the key person system and allow children to select and prepare their own snack to promote independence.
Scissett Kids’ Club was set up 12 years ago and is based at Scissett CofE First School. It employs six members of staff and currently has 57 children on its roll.
