The setting was awarded Lancashire County Councils Step into Quality Award back in October 2015. The Step into Quality accreditation involved whole team reflection on provision and practice, across eight ‘steps’, which have had a positive impact on the setting and also staff development.
From 2015 until present day as a whole setting we have been completing modules in order to achieve the Lancashire Quality Award - We have just submitted our last module so watch this space for our award being published.
The Lancashire Quality Award has given us the opportunity as practitioners to spend focused time together looking at what we do everyday and considering which parts work well and which could be further developed. This overarching systematic tool for self-evaluation and reflection embraces all areas within settings, from leadership and management to daily routines.
Taking on the role of ‘Lead Practitioner Setting’ involves the following –
‘The Lead Practitioner Scheme was established to contribute to the continued development of high quality practice within the Early Years Foundation Stage in Lancashire.
A group of Managers working in a variety of settings and contexts throughout the County have been selected to offer support to other Early Years Foundation Stage practitioners by acting as exemplars and sharing good practice.
Through this scheme, managers and owners have the opportunity to visit other settings, observe high quality teaching and early year’s provision and have discussion with lead practitioners, who are working in a similar context.’
We will now be actively involved with taking part in reflective practice methods throughout the county, influence training needs of practitioners throughout Lancashire and support other settings over a widely spread area.
As you can imagine the staff team feel proud to have been awarded this status and as the nursery manager I am proud of what we have achieved over the last three years. The commitment and enthusiasm of individual staff members means that when we pull together as a team it really does have a positive impact on the care and education the children receive and the service we provide for all of the families using Lakeview. Both management and staff have worked extremely hard to achieve this status.
Food Hygiene Rating Number 5. We have upheld this award for the past five years and continue to do so.
We are proud to work closely with the National Day Nurseries Association. Our Nursery Manager is also the Network Chair Representative for Pendle, Burnley & The Ribble Valley settings.
