Nursery Date’s Reminder

 It has came to my attention that there has been a little confusion with the Friday dates. As you may be aware the Friday sessions do not always work out as every alternate Friday, due to the Monday holidays/in-service days throughout the year. To ensure very child is allocated the same entitlement throughout the year this is made up during the Friday sessions. Please find a copy of the Friday entitlement dates attached. I have also attached the school holiday dates and highlight the dates the nursery is closed. 

 Christmas Closure – The school will finish on the 17th December however the nursery will not finish until Tuesday 21st December again ensuring that our Monday/Tuesday cohort of children receive their yearly entitlement

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to talk to a member of the Early Years Team.
