Nursery Children

 All Nursery children are now eligible to attend school during lockdown. All parents have been contacted offering their child to return to their normal pattern of attendance. If you turned down the offer but have now changed your mind, please contact the school office - A date will be agreed upon which your child can return. Please do not just turn up at school with your child as staff rotas have been put in place dependant on the number of children that we have attending each day. These may need adjusting to accommodate more children to return safely to the setting.
