Wednesday 22 April 2015 - Another Ofsted Outstanding for KOOSA Kids!

Fantastic news, our after school and holiday club at Birch Hill School was inspected on 30th March 2015 and was awarded Ofsted’s highest grade possible, ‘Outstanding’…for the second time in a row!

Yes that’s right, following on from the ‘Outstanding’ inspection achieved back in June 2009 the team of staff, led by our dedicated and hardworking Site Supervisor Cathy Creed, have continued to provide a fantastic service on behalf of the children and parents, resulting in a KOOSA Kids first, back to back Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ inspection grades.

This quality of care on offer was clearly recognised by the inspector who amongst many positive comments noted;

‘This is an exceptional club where children extend their knowledge and skills through the fun activities they undertake.  Staff join in with activities, successfully extending children's enjoyment.  Staff promote safety very effectively and create an exceptionally happy, welcoming and industrious atmosphere’

This now takes the number of ‘Outstanding’ inspection grades received by KOOSA Kids over the past 5 years to six, a record unrivalled in the children’s out of school club sector and one we are rightly very proud of. 

Lee Partner, Managing Director commented, ‘We are extremely pleased and proud to receive another Ofsted Outstanding grade. Cathy and the team at Birch Hill School have been providing an exceptional level of care at the club for some time, however to have this formally recognised by Ofsted is truly fantastic.  Our full and part-time teams work exceptionally hard to ensure that all of our clubs are delivering the highest level of care possible and receiving an outcome like this is certainly reward for all of the hard work and dedication’.
