Staying Safe – Nursery

Comings and Goings

At first, Nursery School may seem a very big, strange place to your young child. Please be patient and be prepared to stay for as long as you and the staff feel is necessary. Children learn best when they feel happy and relaxed.

Time spent on really settling in, is time well invested for your child’s security and confidence. Once your children are settled, a quick, definite “goodbye” is best, but please reassure them that you will be back soon to see what they’ve been doing, and explain what you’ll be doing whilst they are at Nursery School.

It is really important to collect your children on time – searching the sea of faces for your mum or dad, nana or grandad, and finding no-one there can be really upsetting when you’re only 3 or 4 years old.

For security reasons, we do not let children leave our school unless we know the person who is collecting them.Please remember to let us know if someone different is collecting your child.

Absences/Illness

We do encourage regular attendance and timekeeping. Please let us know if your child is not coming to school.

Please be aware if your child has sickness or diarrhoea, we have a 48 hour policy from the last incidence.
