Play scheme is ‘Good’ says Ofsted

It was awarded to Newton Abbot Leisure Centre

Teignstars achieved a ‘good’ rating across the board for effectiveness of the leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment, personal development, and behaviour and welfare.

The Ofsted report commented that ‘children are happy and settle quickly. They benefit from enjoyable activities and experiences to complement their learning in school.’ ‘Children behave very well and respond positively to staff’s consistent messages and good example.’ 

The Holiday Club is open every school holiday for children aged 3 to 13 years. Everyday children participate in a wide range of activities, which include swimming, bouncy castle, sports, arts and crafts and lots more. 

Councillor Phil Bullivant, Teignbridge District Council’s Executive Portfolio Holder for Recreation and Leisure, said: “Providing a safe and stimulating environment for our children is one of our key objectives. 

“Receiving recognition from Ofsted that the services we provide are rated as ‘Good’ demonstrates that we are reaching our goals. We are committed to going further and enhancing our services so that we are recognised as ‘Outstanding’ and this is one of our key objectives for the coming months."
