Admission Arrangements

Nursery Admissions

For admission into the Nursery, parents and carers will find the Policy In the sidebar relating to nursery admissions of great value.

We have produced a booklet for parents giving lots of information and details about life in Nursery for your children.  You can download a copy of the Nursery guide for Parents from the sidebar.

A guide to the Early Years Framework that is used in Nursery has been produced for parents, also in the sidebar.

More information about Admissions and our Induction process can be found here.

Attendance

On accepting a place for your child you are agreeing for them to attend for five 3 hours sessions a week.  Children who attend in this regular pattern settle well into nursery routines, have the opportunity to build relationships with staff and their peers and develop good practice for future school life.

If your child is unwell please keep them at home, even if they tell you they want to come!! Young children are very prone to cross contamination of common bugs and germs and illness can spread quickly.  If they have been vomiting, we ask that you keep them off for at least 24 hours after the last bout of sickness. If they have diahorrea, please keep them off for 48 hours after the last episode.  

If your child is absent or late, a simple phone call to the school office is required.

Our Ethos

We firmly believe that children learn best through play.  We hope to produce happy, confident, resilient, inquisitive and independent learners.  We aim to provide a challenging, exciting, inviting learning environment where children feel safe and secure, and are willing to participate in the activities provided and to seek out learning opportunities independently.

Our Aims

We aim to ensure that our children are happy, safe, confident and independent. 

We aim to challenge our children through well planned activities and environments, encouraging them to explore, investigate, talk about their ideas and work collaboratively with others, both adults and children.

We aim to provide activities and learning opportunities which will stimulate and interest children.  Our planning starts with the children, with their needs and their interests.  We plan as a team, considering the next steps for our children, and discuss which activities will best fit their next steps.
