Policies and Procedures
Although nursery education is non-statutory, it is very important that having gained a place, your child attends regularly. Not only do children make better progress if they attend every day, but it means the best possible use is being made of scarce nursery places. If you have any problems about bringing your child regularly, please talk to us about it – we would love to try and help with the problem.
Please ensure that your child arrives at nursery in time for registration which is taken within the first 15 minutes both the morning and afternoon sessions. Please let us know if you’re child is absent due to illness so that it can be recorded correctly, and in advance for any medical appointments and holidays. Holidays are authorised for up to 2 weeks, but can be extended in exceptional circumstances. If your child is absent for 4 weeks they may be removed from the register and their nursery place vacated for someone else.
Collecting Your Child
Please make safe arrangements for collecting your child from school. Tell the staff in advance if someone different is coming to collect your child so we can give a password and reassure your child. Please do not send young brothers and sisters who may not be able to look after little children when crossing busy roads.
