The School Day


Morning session 8.45 am - 11.15 am           
Afternoon session 12.15 pm - 14.45 pm

Arriving to school:- Our nursery school has a very clear entry system to enable us to keep the children safe. The gates will be open at 08.40 and at 12.10 - any parents and children arriving before this time are requested to queue outdoors.

A member of staff will be on duty at the class entrances, for 10 minutes, after which time the door will be locked. If you arrive late, please go to the front entrance and ring the bell.   A member of staff will admit you when free.  

It is important for your child to make the most of each session so please try to bring him/her on time each day. However, if you are late don't panic; just come along and explain to us - better late than never! 

Please bring your child into the room when you arrive. 

Collection from school:- At the end of the session, please ensure that you are on time so that your child does not become anxious. When you come to collect your child the door will be released approximately 5 minutes before the end of the session. The staff will need time to clean and set out materials for the next session.

Please Note:  Children must be collected from school by an adult (person over 16 years) whose details have previously been included on the Permission to collect form given to our secretary.

Regular attendance and Routine is comforting for children and it is important that your child comes to school every day.  
If a child is absent please ring the nursery, send an email or a message on Evidence Me to your child's class teacher.  We have an answer phone that allows messages to be left 24/7 if you are going to be late or absent.

Our secretary will follow up on unreported absences and should a child be frequently absent without contact we will have no alternative but to offer the place to another child.
