Staff Testimonial

I started working at the beginning of summer 2016 as a Senior Sports Instructor at Harlow camp. What I enjoyed most at camp was, the range of different activities was so broad it made making the experience as enjoyable and varied as possible. Working with barracudas has helped me to improve my leadership skills through a hands-on experience. Also this has helped me to gather skills and ideas on how to differentiate any game to get maximum enjoyment for the children. I would definitely recommend Barracudas to anyone, as there really is no job like it. Every day was different and you get paid to have fun with the children at camp! All the staff were fantastic and the facilities are amazing! I can't wait to go back!

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!
