September 2017 starters


If you applied for your child to start our nursery in September 2017 you will have received a letter from us to let you know if your application has been successful or not. If your application has been successful you will be invited into school on Monday 17th July 2017 at either 2pm or 5pm to come and meet us and our new Nursery teacher, Mrs. Gallen. At this meeting there will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions and let us know about your child. There is no need to attend both meetings, they are running twice to help fit around any child care or work commitments. You will be welcome to bring your child with you if you wish.


As well as recruiting Mrs. Gallen to come and join our team we are also recruiting a teaching assistant to work along side her. Information is in on our vacancies page.
