Pre-school improvement plan 2018-2019
Robust and effective (evidence based) self-evaluation, is carried out regularly and practice is monitored and reflected upon throughout the year. This process inevitably leads to the development of an annual Pre-school improvement plan. The plan is drawn up after input from internal stakeholders (i.e. staff, children, parents/carers, committee) and also from external
stakeholders i.e. Pre-School Learning Alliance (PLA), Local Authority (LA) and OFSTED. The changing needs of the setting and the local area are always taken into account during this process of self-evaluation.
Our priorities for this year are:
Leadership and management
· Develop training opportunities for parents/carers though regular stay and play sessions
and at coffee mornings to be held at Sure Start centre e.g. MAKATON, nutrition advice,
home play/learning opportunities and so on.
· Develop succession planning for key roles: senior leadership team, committee, admin.
Quality of teaching, learning and assessment
· Develop staff knowledge around ‘sustained, shared thinking.’
· Develop positive behaviour strategies within the whole staff team
and be able to demonstrate effective practice to parents/carers so they can confidently use the same strategies at home.

Partnerships with parents are highly successful.
Staff provide a superb range of activities that embraces the diversity of children's home lives.
The pre-school environment is exceptionally well resourced both inside and outside.
Children have high levels of self-esteem and are very confident. They learn outstanding social skills from staff who are first class role models.
