Thank you to those who have attended our induction meeting and we hope you found it informative. To ensure a smooth transition for both you and your child, we are now informing you of the induction timetable. Your child will be in Nursery class.


Stay and Play sessions in Nursery will continue on Thursday 6th July, Thursday 13th July and Thursday 20th July 2023 from 9-10.30am. During this time, you will be able to support your child as they explore the Nursery and become familiar with the setting.


Nursery starters will have an initial staggered and part time induction to prepare them for full time Nursery from Monday 2nd October 2023.


Your child will attend the following staggered induction dates:


Starting Nursery

Monday 11th September 2023

8:55am – 10.30am
Parents to remain with children

Monday 18th September 2023

8:55am – 11.30am

Children to attend without parents

Monday  25th September 2023

8:55am - 3:20pm
Children to attend without parents

Monday 2nd October 2023 onwards

8:55am - 3:20pm (Full Time)


It is vital that you are familiar with these start dates and have familiarised yourself with the Nursery setting. Children will enter the Nursery premises through the main gate and be greeted by staff at the Nursery door. Following a swift goodbye, members of staff will then take children to their classroom. We know a child’s first day at Nursery is a huge milestone and we will do all we can to ensure everyone has a smile on their face. Children are to wear Nursery uniform and bring a named water bottle.


Thank you for your support in helping to settle the children into our Nursery. We look forward to working with you and your child at this important time. If you have any questions, please contact the school.


Yours Sincerely,


Miss G McCulloch

Assistant Head Teacher
