Newsletter Spring Term 2020

Happy New Year to you all! We hope you had a great Christmas break.

We would like to welcome our new families; we look forward to being a part of your early year’s journey.

Nursery, Pre-school 2 and Pre-school 1 are all investigating ‘space’ this half term. If you have any resources or knowledge to share with us it will greatly appreciated. Nursery is using the story ‘Whatever Next’ to base their activities on.  The theme in the Baby Room is nursery rhymes.

School Bags

Thank you to everyone for using the new bags, this has helped with storage and reduced the use of single use plastics such as nappy bags. If your children’s clothes are soiled we will still have to use a nappy bag for health and hygiene reasons but general wet items will just go home in the wet bags.

We have signed up to a campaign launched by Surfers against Sewage to further reduce our use of plastic – more information to follow!


Please could all children in Baby, Nursery and PS 2 leave a pair of slippers or slipper socks at school.

Parent Meetings – week beginning 2nd March

Please book in with your keyworker.


Please could you send in photos of your families carrying out daily routines at home, i.e. washing up, walking the dog, going to the park, driving to Nursery and family celebrations, for each room to display in their role play areas.


You should all have received, via email, a copy of the year’s dates for your reference. Please note the days we are closed for Bank Holidays and staff training.

On Friday 14th and Saturday 15th February all staff are renewing their Paediatric first aid qualification and in March Vicki and Lexi are renewing their Designated Child Protection Officer roles.
