Highest Ofsted grade awarded to Surbiton Breakfast & After School Club

Kiddi Caru - 20th October 2021

A huge congratulations to the team at the Dicky Birds St Andrews Breakfast and After School Club in Surbiton for the amazing praise received from their recent Ofsted inspection. We are delighted to share that the club received a ‘Met’ grading, the highest grade available from Ofsted for after school clubs.

Ofsted reported that ‘Children thoroughly enjoy their time at this extremely warm, friendly, and welcoming after-school club.’ The team was further praised for their ‘strong bond’ with the children highlighting that they ‘value children's views, ideas, and opinions and ‘enjoy spending time with them’.

Here are a few other highlights from the report:

  • Staff are attentive and support children's play. They have excellent interactions with children. This contributes significantly to children's sense of belonging and supports them to feel safe and secure.
  • Children mix well with different age groups and behave well. They choose whether they wish to play inside or outdoors and enjoy the varied and stimulating environment staff create. Children eagerly make their own choices in their play.

We are extremely proud of the St Andrews team for the brilliant efforts they put into caring for the little ones each and every day, which clearly shone through during the inspection.
