Last updated at 08:48, Friday, 24 July 2009
COCKERMOUTH’S after-school scheme has received a good Ofsted report, an improvement on its satisfactory report three years ago.
The club, in the Scout hut on St Helens Street, provides a breakfast club, after-school club and holiday play scheme for children aged four to 11.
Children from Fairfield infant and junior, All Saints primary, St Joseph’s prim-ary and Eaglesfield Paddle schools attend.
The inspector said that staff had positive relationships with the children and provided a welcoming environment.
She was impressed by the range of activities available and the way that varied interests were catered for.
The inspector added that children benefited from a range of visitors and organisations to the scheme, such as firefighters and farmers.
Julie Poole, scheme manager, said: “It’s a real achievement. It has been a team effort, and I am pleased with the results.”
Committee chairman James Gibson, whose son has attended the scheme for seven years, said: “Children enjoy themselves and that has been the overwhelming message from the Ofsted report.
“Everyone works hard to ensure the best care for the children and I’m delighted that it has received such a complimentary report.”
