ACTION has or is being taken on every recommendation by education watchdog Ofsted in respect of a Knutsford holiday club.

So says Anne-Louise Nelson, the educational director at Learning Legendz, which provides out-of-school day care at 2nd Knutsford Scout Hut in Manor Crescent, Knutsford.

The club caters for children aged three to 13, and has 30 children on its roll. It opens during school holidays, and runs from 8am to 6pm.

Ofsted rated the quality and standards of early years provision as inadequate after visiting the holiday club last month.

It rated the effectiveness of leadership and management, and personal development, behaviour and welfare as inadequate, and the quality of teaching, learning and assessment as good.

The inspection took place on April 16, and Ofsted gave the club until April 30 to undertake a number of improvements.

Anne-Louise said: “My staff, families and myself are obviously disappointed with the outcome in our Early Years Inspection, and don’t feel it fully reflects the club.

“Unfortunately, I was away at the time, and didn’t get the opportunity to speak to, or meet with, Ofsted myself on the day.

“All recommendations are being, or have been actioned, and we look forward to Ofsted’s return.

“I am very lucky to have a highly-qualified, amazing staff team, and the children who attend have a brilliant time.”

The Ofsted report said: “The provider has failed to record required information, including the home address, parental contact details and information regarding children’s health, for all children. This compromises children’s well-being.

“The provider has not ensured that a contact number for the holiday club is available for parents in her absence.

“The only phone number available is for the provider. When she is not present, such as when on holiday, there is no other method in which parents can contact the club. This has an impact on children’s well-being.

“The provider has failed to record required information with regards to suitability and vetting procedures for all staff.”

The report added that children were happy and engaged during their time at the holiday club, developed friendships with other children and made choices from a number of activities as they played.
