Start of Nursery

We know this has been a strange and unsettling time for everyone therefore we want to reassure you that as a school we are ensuring the safety of the children is paramount. We are looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know the children. Below are some reminders from the letter Ms Elliott sent out for the week commencing 14th September;


Year Group/Class

Start Time

End Time



8:30am / 12:30pm

11:30am / 3:30pm


Please ensure that you are prompt at these times to ensure that we minimise as much contact between adults and children as possible.

Where possible please restrict the number of people that come onto the school grounds to drop off or collect your child/children.

If you need to speak to a teacher please maintain social distance.


Start and end of the day 

Nursery children will enter the school through the side pedestrian gate at the right hand side of the main gates and leave through the main gates which will be left open during this time (This will be explained fully during induction week beginning 14 September).


Please can we ask that you wait at the Nursery gate for a member of staff to welcome you into the Nursery playground and that children to do not play on the equipment set out in the area. 


Collection at the end of the day will be the same as the start of the day. The staff will ensure that they pass your child back to you or a nominated adult (yellow collection forms will be handed out week commencing 14th September).


Personal Belongings

Please can you ensure that all belongings and items of clothing, including bookbags and coats are clearly labelled with your child’s name.



All of the children will be within their own classroom throughout the day with limited movement to minimise risk. This will become their ‘bubble’ or group of children with their allocated members of staff. The bubble will operate as a year group and will only mix within that year group. 



The classrooms look a little different and are more minimalistic than normal. Classroom displays and resources are reduced and soft furnishings and toys are stored away.


The cleaners conduct a deep clean at the end of the day.


Hand washing 

Children have to wash their hands on entry to the classroom and before leaving the classroom to meet their parents. Throughout the day there are numerous toilet breaks and the opportunity to wash hands carefully under the supervision of the staff.
