Wednesday 09 November 2016 - Crown Wood After School Club in Bracknell is Ofsted 'Outstanding'

We just wanted to share the fantastic news that on 12th October 2016, our Crown Wood Primary School after school club was inspected by Ofsted and has just been awarded the highest grade possible...'Outstanding'!

The inspection lasted most of the afternoon 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 inspector highlighted;

'Children flourish and form very strong attachments with staff. Staff are very kind and caring to children. They respect the time when children want to be quiet and engage in play with them when children invite them to. Staff frequently praise, encourage and support children's self-esteem and confidence. Children have an excellent understanding of the boundaries and where to play safely'

Needless to say, everyone at KOOSA Kids is absolutely thrilled with this news. Lorraine and Cheryl, our caring and dedicated team at Crown Wood School, continue to provide a fantastic service on behalf of the children and parents and it is true reward for the team that their efforts have been formally recognised in such a way.

The news has also been shared with Antoinette Butler-Willis, head teacher at Crown Wood Primary School who commented;

‘I want to pass on my congratulations to everyone associated with the after school club.  High quality after school provision is so important for Crown Wood School, its parents and children and we have been delighted with the club since it opened in 2014.  To receive this recognition formally from Ofsted is a fantastic achievement’

Outstanding grades are notoriously hard to achieve in the 'out of school' sector, however this latest inspection now takes the total number of 'Outstandings' received by KOOSA Kids in 2016 to five, an achievement we are all extremely proud of.
