Nursery

Welcome to St Paul’s Nursery.

Please find below some general information-more detailed information can be found in our half termly curriculum newsletter given out at the start of each term.

Starting School
Nursery will start school in small groups.  All parents will receive a letter with the intended start date for your child.  Please contact the school office if you have not received this letter.

Due to COVID restrictions, Nursery children will attend school from 9:30am until 2:30pm initially.  Children will need to be dropped off and collected promptly from the Nursery door.

Once all children have started school in their small groups, all children will be in school full time from the week beginning 28 September. Again due to COVID, there will be a staggered start and finish time, from 8:45am to 2:55pm, until further notice.

Admissions
Please Note: Admission to Nursery does NOT guarantee you a place in Reception.  Information about applying for a place in our Reception class will be given to you in the Autumn term of your child’s Nursery year.

Uniform
PLEASE PUT YOUR CHILD’S NAME IN THEIR CLOTHING, this includes coats and wellies if in school. We had a lot of lost property last year.  All new Nursery children will receive one free cardigan or jumper on their first day at school.  We ask that, in the current climate, all children wear a clean set of uniform every day.

Staffing
Once all children begin, if you need to speak to your child’s teacher you will need to make an appointment for a phone call via the school office.

The Nursery staff this year are:
Mrs Bamford (Nursery Teacher on Mon, Tues, Wed).
Mrs Brandrick (Nursery Teacher on Wed, Thurs, Fri)

Profiles
Your child’s progress will be tracked and pictures and teacher observations  will be put into an electronic folder using “Tapestry”, an online record system. This will be available for you to look through at Parents’ Evening.
