Following government guidance about childcare settings opening from the 1st June 2020, we are starting a phased return back to Nursery for children who will starting Reception in September of this year. In order to follow recommendations for keeping children safe and limiting the opportunity for the spread of the virus, class sizes will be unable to be larger than 15. As a result children who are entitled to 30 hours childcare will be a priority, and children who attended nursery part time may have to be offered limited hours. We will continue to try to get in contact with you if your child will be eligible to return to Nursery before the summer holidays but if you haven't heard from us please get in contact if you are unsure. 


Please be reassured that the safety of the nursery school community will be the priority in planning the next steps and as a result there will be some changes to start and finish times, classrooms and staff members working with your children.


In the meantime if you are required to go back to work and you or your partner are a key worker then please contact the school if you need your child to attend.
