Our Day

When arriving at nursery children sign in using their photograph. They then hang up their coats on their coat peg. The nursery day starts at 8.30am and finishes at 2:20pm. Parents who have older children in the school may collect their children after 2.20pm but no later than 3pm with arrangement with Mrs Heighton.

In the Foundation Stage children learn through well planned play activities. They access all areas of the nursery inside and out. The curriculum is delivered through the children’s interests and our assessments are carried out by observations.
Please ensure all clothing is named.

Home Learning

Home learning is frequently sent home or posted on our website. You can access the home learning using your child’s log-in details. Home learning includes a variety of activities including learning nursery rhymes and songs, counting, re-telling stories and talking. Please encourage your child to complete the activities. We value your comments about your child's learning and development.

Events & Activities

We hold regular open sessions where parents are invited to see what the children have been learning, some of their work and to join in with activities.


This year our focus is developing reading skills throughout the school. You can help by sharing books with your child and encouraging them to talk about stories. Talking about print in the environment, eg, shop signs, car names etc, will help develop pre reading skills.

Uniform and Jewellery

Children should wear a white or yellow polo shirt with a green jumper or cardigan and black or grey skirt or trousers. Sensible shoes should be worn, not trainers or boots of any sort. Please ensure that your child does not wear jewellery.  Long hair MUST be tied back throughout the day. Nail polish and make-up are not allowed. Headscarves or coverings may be worn for religious purposes, but they must be a plain school colour (Black, White, Grey, Yellow or Green).

Additional Information

We welcome comments and questions about your child’s time at nursery. This can be done at the start or end of each day, or by appointment. We hold termly parents’ consultations where your child’s progress is shared.
Children should not bring any toys or games from home into the nursery. Water bottles are not allowed in nursery as we provide the children with a drink of milk or water. If your child is staying for a school lunch you can send a packed lunch from home, or purchase a hot school meal. Some children may be entitled to a free school meal.
