Staff Testimonial

I started working at Barracudas in the summer of 2016 as a Group Coordinator in Cobham. I had an absolutely amazing time, it helped me learn how to coordinate with lots of children and how to run fun, exciting sessions. This experience has contributed greatly to my teaching knowledge and has helped my confidence in and out of the classroom grow enormously. The managers were extremely helpful and informative, without being intimidating or condescending. They made the whole experience a lot easier for the new staff and ensured we all had a great time. Thanks for a great summer, Barracudas!

Great News From Ofsted!

Great News From Ofsted! 

Every summer, a handful of our camps are visited by Ofsted, who rate us on the different areas of our service. From the general welfare of the children in our care, to the quality of supervision that we provide, leaving no area uninspected.

This summer was no different, with 7 of our camps receiving Ofsted visits and an Ofsted rating. 


How Ofsted Ratings Work:


Ofsted visit our camps to rate us on the service we provide and ensure that we are providing the best possible service to the children in our care.

 

The 3 categories that we are ranked on are:

 

• Effectiveness of Leadership and Management

• Quality of Supervision, Learning and Assessment

• Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare

 

From this, we’re given an overall rating, with the camp receiving one of the following ratings:

 

1. Outstanding

2. Good

3. Requires Improvement

4. Inadequate

 

THE RESULTS ARE IN!

 

Here are the 7 camps who were assessed and their ratings:

 

Watford: OUTSTANDING

 

Maidstone: OUTSTANDING

 

Barnet: GOOD

 

Bedford: GOOD

 

Harlow: GOOD

 

Norwich: GOOD

 

St. Albans: GOOD

 

Well done to everyone involved in the inspections, the results were AMAZING!
