Springboard was last inspected in October 2015 and we are pleased to be awarded ‘Outstanding’.

This provision is outstanding-

  • The quality of teaching is consistently high. Managers and staff use their expert
    knowledge of how children learn to plan an excellent range of high-quality experiences,
    precisely tailored to individual needs of each child. Managers and staff have high
    aspirations for children.
  • Children behave exceptionally well. They are thoughtful as they take turns, share and
    seek out others to join their play. Children develop excellent social skills. Managers and
    staff offer children positive praise, which helps promote confidence and self-esteem.
  • Partnerships with parents are exemplary and they are involved in children’s learning
    from the start. Managers and staff regularly share information with parents and work
    highly effectively with them to ensure learning at home informs children’s individualised
    planning.
  • The leadership of the playgroup is inspirational. They are passionate about continually
    evaluating, updating and improving all aspects of practice. The recommendation raised
    at the last inspection has been addressed. This has helped ensure they continue to
    maintain the highest possible standards.
