Welcome to Nursery

This year your child will be working with Mrs Doherty (Mon, Tue, Thurs) Miss Brough (Weds and Fri), Mrs Parish and Mrs Thornley.

Over the year we will cover lots of fun topics. Our first topic will be ‘Marvellous Me’ we will also have a focus on Nursery Rhymes and Traditional Tales. 


School Uniform

Please remember to label your child’s uniform, especially their jumpers, cardigans and coats. Due to Covid-19 guidance windows will be need to be open to provide ventilation for most of the school day. If the weather is cold, please provide your child with an extra layer to keep warm. This does not need to be in school colours.

Kit Bags

Kit Bags and PE Kit

Please ensure your child has a kit bag with at least one spare full set of clothes including socks and underwear. This is in case of toileting accidents as well as for messy activities.

 Nursery’s PE day will be on a Friday, so please ensure your child is wearing their PE kit and appropriate footwear to school on that day. The PE kit consists of trainers, blue shorts / jogging bottoms and a plain white T-shirt which are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Dinner Times

Pupils eat their lunch between 11:30 and 12:00. We will provide menus for parents to choose which meals they would prefer their children to have.

Entrance to School

Please line up with your child at the wooden gate within the nursery playground. A member of staff will come and open the gate at 8:50am.

Please do not allow your children to play on any of the equipment before or after School for health and safety reasons.

Reading and Library

We place great emphasis on books and storytelling and your role in this is also very important. We would greatly appreciate it if you would read a book with your child each night. It is helpful if your child has a book-bag to bring to school each day. We will use it to send home school library books, art work etc and school letters. Nursery change their library books on Wednesdays.  Please ensure your child brings it back the following week so they can swap it for a new one for you to share at home.

School Fund & Toast

Toast and fruit.

We offer toast in the mornings. If you would like your child to have toast, please pre-pay using the ParentPay app each half term. Your child will be offered a piece of fruit each day, usually in the afternoon.

 School Fund

School fund is 50p per week. Please contribute through Parent Pay each half term. Please remember this as it helps subsidise trips and buy equipment for the children, such as certificates and playtime games.


Your child will receive a piece of fruit each day, usually in the afternoon.

Milk & Water Bottles

Milk in Nursery Class is free. Please let us know if you do not wish your child to have milk. Water is always available. Your child is welcome to bring their own, named water bottle and we ask you to take it home at the end of the day and bring it back refreshed the next day.

Collecting from School

If you have other children in the school, please collect your nursery children first. School finishes at 3.15pm. Nursery will open the gate at 3.10pm. The collection point is the same as in the morning.

If you have any queries or questions, then please come in and see us either between 8:45am – 8:55am or after school. If neither of those times are available, please contact the office to make an appointment.

 We hope your children will be very happy in Nursery, and we look forward to getting to know them.
