Monday 13 September 2010 - St Joseph's Holiday club in Guildford is Ofsted Outstanding

Hot off the press.....our St Joseph's holiday club in Guildford was inspected during the Summer holidays and was awarded the highest grade possible, Outstanding!

The inspection took place on 20/08/2010, with the inspector present for the duration of the day.  Amongst the many positive comments made about the quality of the club, the inspector commented

"The overall quality of the setting is outstanding. The quality of leadership is a particular strength, with high expectations and creating a positive ethos shared by all staff. As a result, children feel valued, safe and secure and thoroughly enjoy their time at the club, whilst making significant steps in their learning and development. The setting works very successfully in partnership with parents, the school and a range of agencies to make provision for individual needs. Recommendations made at the time of the last inspection have been fully met and this, combined with thorough and systematic self-evaluation procedures, means the setting demonstrates outstanding capacity to improve".

This takes the total number of 'Outstanding' KOOSA Kids clubs to four, with the rest all having received nothing less than a 'Good' grading.  This is a record that is unrivalled accross the out of school sector and one that hopefully goes a long way in supporting our mission to ensure that good quality and affordable childcare can go hand in hand.
