Wednesday 17 August 2016 - Our St Joseph's Holiday, After School & Breakfast Club in Guildford is OUTSTANDING!

Amazing news!  Our holiday club at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Guildford was subject to a full Ofsted inspection on Wednesday 27th July 2016 and has been awarded the highest possible grade, 'Outstanding', for the second time!

The visit lasted most of the day with the inspector interviewing staff, observing and speaking to the children and also seeking the views of several parents.  They also carried out a thorough review of our systems, paperwork and procedures to ensure that the club was providing the best level of care for children attending.

Amongst many complimentary comments, the Ofsted inspector noted the following;

‘Staff interactions with children are of a very high quality and skilfully encourage children's curiosity to find solutions to problems. Children develop high levels of confidence. For example, children confidently show items they have brought in and other children think of questions to ask them about the items. Children have excellent opportunities to work together and express themselves and they demonstrate high levels of self-esteem. Staff support children's awareness of differences between themselves and others very well through an excellent variety of activities and resources’

Needless to say, everyone at KOOSA Kids is absolutely over the moon with the news.  Phil Wade, Operations Director commented;

‘The team at St Joseph’s, led by our dynamic Site Supervisor Sam Duffell has continued to provide a fantastic service on behalf of the children and parents and I am delighted for the team that their efforts have been formally recognised in such a way.  Everyone at KOOSA Kids continues to work very hard to ensure all of our clubs are affordable for parents, fun for the children and of the highest possible quality for all and I am extremely pleased that we continue to be able to achieve all of these goals’.

This latest ‘Outstanding’ award now means five out of the last eight Ofsted inspections carried out across KOOSA Kids clubs has resulted in Ofsted’s highest possible grading. This is an unrivalled track record and one that everyone at KOOSA Kids is extremely proud of.
