Organisation of the school day:
Morning Session: 8.55am - 12.07pm
Afternoon Session: 12.48pm - 4.00pm
If you arrive before the start of the session please use the parents’ area, as staff use this time to plan the day’s activities.
It may take a little while for your child to settle into Nursery so please be prepared to stay with your child until he/she is settled and happy to be without you.
To make the transition to Nursery less stressful we have a staggered intake. This allows the Teacher more time to get to know the children and to speak to parents. If any of our children are having a second year in Nursery then it is really helpful for their self-esteem to be in at the start of a new term to show others the way Nursery operates.
Please let us know if your child is ill or on holiday.
Please do not bring your child to the Nursery if he/she is not well or has something highly infectious, such as sickness and diarrhoea. There should be a gap of at least 48 hours between the last bout of sickness and diarrhoea and the child returning to Nursery.
Under the Health & Safety rules, Nursery staff are not allowed to dispense medicines and unless absolutely necessary no medicines should be brought to the Nursery. Where medicines have to be dispensed, this will be done by the Teacher, but only with written permission from the parent.
If your child becomes ill during Nursery every effort will be made to contact you.
If you are unable to collect your child personally please inform staff of your replacement, who must be a person of 16+ and known to your child.
If weather conditions are poor and deteriorating please phone the school prior to setting out. If the school has to close during the day you will be contacted.
