Wednesday 31 August 2016 - It's a Truly Amazing Hat-Trick! Our Holiday Club in Tadley is Ofsted OUTSTANDING!

Wow, it’s a truly amazing hat-trick!  Following the Ofsted Outstanding’s awarded to our holiday clubs at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Guildford & Whitton Sports Centre in Richmond over the past two weeks, we are bowled over to be able to announce that following a third inspection on 9th August 2016, our holiday club based at Tadley Primary School in Tadley has also been awarded Ofsted’s highest accolade, Outstanding.

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 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. Staff are highly successful in encouraging and supporting children to develop new skills. They sensitively adapt the activities to meet children's individual needs. Personal development, behaviour and welfare are outstanding.  Excellent communication with parents, as children join the club, ensures staff understand children's needs extremely well. Children settle in quickly and flourish. Staff frequently praise, encourage and strengthen children's self-esteem and confidence’

Needless to say, everyone at KOOSA Kids is absolutely thrilled to make it three out of three ‘Outstandings’ for Summer 2016 and a phenomenal seven out of the last ten across all KOOSA Kids clubs.  Lee Partner, Managing Director commented;

'It is hard to overstate 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.  I am extremely proud of all of the full and part-time staff who through their energy and commitment, always with a smile on their face, have hugely contributed towards this success. I would also like to thank all of the children and parents who continue to choose KOOSA Kids for their children’s holiday, after school and breakfast club childcare.  We would not have been able to achieve this success without you’
