Last updated Apr 28, 2022

Oatlands Funclub in Harrogate has been praised by Ofsted following a recent inspection.

Government inspectors visited the club, which is based at Oatlands Infant School, in March.

Their report, published this week, said “children are extremely happy and settled” and “managers have rigorous recruitment and induction processes in place”.

It added:

“Managers and staff complete regular safeguarding training. As a result, they have a good knowledge of the signs that may indicate a child is at risk of abuse or neglect.

“The manager provides regular one-to-one meetings for all staff. This provides them with the opportunity to discuss the children they care for, their roles and responsibilities and their training needs.”

Ofsted also found staff were continually reflecting on the club’s effectiveness and made changes if needed.

Staff were praised for teaching children about hygiene and different cultural events throughout the year, such as crafts for Chinese New Year.

Funclub is a private company that provides before and after school care for children as well as holiday care. The club also runs services at Pannal, Rossett Acre, Richard Taylor School in Bilton and St Peter’s Primary School in Harrogate.

Jenny Rowlands, director of Funclub, said:

“This report is a testament to the team and management, the team truly care for the kids and it’s great to see that recognised in the report.”
