KOOSA Kids, leading provider of school based breakfast, after school and holiday childcare provision, has announced a hat-trick of Ofsted outstanding grades at its clubs over the summer holidays.
Following lengthy observations, interviews with staff, children and parents and intensive reviews of processes and procedures, Ofsted awarded its highest accolade of ‘Outstanding’ to;
- St Joseph’s Catholic Primary, Breakfast, After School and Holiday club in Guildford.
- Whitton Sports Centre Holiday club in Richmond.
- Tadley Primary School After School and Holiday club in Tadley.
The quality on offer was clearly recognised by the inspector with the Ofsted reports highlighting ‘outstanding’ across all areas of leadership, quality of teaching and personal development at all three clubs. Some of the key points from the reports include;
- Staff are extremely skilled at devising exciting activities, such as superheroes or water play, and then adding a new dimension to them. Children enjoy a great deal of choice.
- Children speak highly of coaches and parents relate that they are always excited about going to the club. Coaches expertly involve children in learning the importance of keeping fit and active’
- Children thrive at the extremely well-organised club. Staff gain highly effective information from parents before children start and this helps staff to plan effectively around children’s interests and needs.
With eight of its clubs currently rated as outstanding, KOOSA Kids remain unrivalled in the children’s Out of School Club Sector.
Lee Partner, Managing Director at KOOSA Kids comments “It is hard to overstate, especially for out of school provision, what an achievement it is to receive one Ofsted Outstanding, however to receive three in the space of just three weeks and eight in the past two years is an absolutely phenomenal accomplishment. We have always focused very hard on quality within our clubs and it’s true reward to have this consistently recognised by Ofsted in such a way. I am extremely proud of all of our staff who through their energy and commitment, always with a smile on their face, have hugely contributed towards this success”.
