Our Consultations - Parents' Questionnaire

The staff team is committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to provide high quality, safe care together with stimulating, fun play and learning opportunities for your children.

Bearing this in mind, we would appreciate it if you could complete the questionnaire about the childcare service you have received this year at Jesters to help us plan and improve our current provision for the future.

Quality Assurance

In May 2011 we were awarded the Aiming Higher Quality Assurance kitemark. This is a government approved scheme carrying Investors in Children Status. It offers comprehensive and simple to use guidance materials, on-hand support through a network of experienced mentors, and fast assessments once childcare settings are ready. The scheme is broken down into 12 areas but because we don't have under 2's we were only assessed against 11 standards.

  • Commitment to Quality
  • Care, Learning and Play
  • Staffing
  • Premises
  • Food and Drink
  • Equal Opportunities
  • Access
  • Partnerships with Parents and the Community
  • Safeguarding
  • Organisation
  • Transport

Our final report can be viewed upon request.

We were assessed in January 2011 against the RAG Quality Assurance Scheme. Local Authorities are expected to categorise settings through a transparent open process and use the information from this to offer universal, targeted and intensive support for settings to help them improve.

Settings are given an overall Red, Amber or Green Judgement with actions identified and support provided by the appropriate childcare consultant. Assessors look at the following areas:

  • Leadership and Management
  • EYFS (Early Years Foundation stage)
  • Learning and Development
  • Welfare
  • SEF (Self Evaluation Form)
  • Data / Sufficiency/ Sustainability
  • Partnership Working
  • Transition
  • Professional Qualifications
  • Continuous Professional Development
  • Ofsted Judgement
  • Inclusion
  • Review of actions and recommendations from last assessment

In 2013 Jesters were awarded GREEN which means our assessor had no cause for concern and we had all the appropriate paperwork, policies and documentation in place.

Insurance & Liability

The Children Act 1989 and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, place a number of legal responsibilities on the Jesters. Therefore, we have insurance cover appropriate to its duties under this legislation, including Employer’ Liability Insurance. Responsibility will, in most cases, rest with Jesters, but staff will take reasonable care, both for themselves and other people who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work. If Jesters is held responsible for any incident that may occur, public liability insurance will cover compensation.

Under provisions contained in the Occupiers Liability Act 1957, we have a duty to ensure that both children and any visitors are kept reasonably safe. The parties named in the wording of the premises contract are responsible for this duty. Jester's full responsibilities and procedures in respect of Health and Safety, are contained in this policy, alongside the relevant sections of the following policies:

  • Staffing
  • Physical Environment
  • Equipment
  • Risk Assessment
  • Site Security
  • Fire Safety
  • Visits and Outings
  • Health, Illness and Emergency
  • Hygiene
  • Managing Behaviour
  • Child Protection
  • Documentation and Information

"At Jester's children are the number 1 priority"
