Autumn 1- Nursery Welcome letter

School Fund

This year, we plan to offer a number of exciting enrichment activities to all children, and we need your help to be able to do so.


We are asking that all parents please try to contribute. This is a one-off payment of £25.

If you are unable to afford this, please do try to make a smaller contribution. This includes pupils eligible for Pupil Premium.


If every parent contributes something, it will make such a difference to what we can offer!

Your contribution is entirely voluntary, but you will understand the difference that it makes.


Please login to your Parent Portal, sign your child up to the Voluntary contribution TRIP and make your contribution payment on Arbor.


Please note that day trips and residentials will be paid for separately, not from the school fund,  and you will be notified of these as and when they occur.


Thank you for your continued support.

Friday 10th September 2021

We are so proud of all the children who have started this week. They have  done so well settling into the nursery and exploring their new environment. We are looking forward to welcoming more children next week. Once all the children have started, we will post an Autumn 1 letter. 

Please can we remind you to label all of their items as it can get a bit tricky at the end of the sessions. 

Have a lovely weekend. 

Drop off and Pick Up Safety


We like to have a good relationship with our local residents so please remember, if possible, walk to school. 


If you are driving in the local area, please do so considerately and under no circumstances block residents' driveway for any length of time. You must not stop or let children out of the car on the zigzag lines outside the school gate. 


Also, a reminder that the use of e-scooters is both dangerous and illegal. 


Lockdown Procedures.


As you will know all schools need to be prepared for a situation where they need to lockdown the school – keeping children and staff inside for their own safety.  


To ensure we are prepared for this we have worked hard to put in place very clear procedures for a lockdown situation using the advice from the Metropolitan Police and other emergency agencies. We have a lockdown policy and procedures for our school, but these are not available on our website or shared beyond staff in the school for obvious security reasons. 


We conduct termly lockdown drills with the children and staff to make sure the procedures work. We will ensure that the children understand that, like in the event of a fire alarm – which means the building is not safe – where everybody stays calm and leaves sensibly, a lockdown simply means that something outside is not safe – therefore we stay inside the building and sit quietly and calmly. In an age-appropriate way we will make sure that they are aware of how to respond in the event of an emergency situation.
