FOUNDATION STAGE 1
FLEXIBLE NURSERY

 

Nursery

 

At Grove Road Primary School we offer a choice of nursery sessions and this information sheet will explain how we administer them.

 

Every child is entitled to 15 hours government funded sessions per week.  Our nursery sessions are 3 hours long and you can request which days you would like your child to attend.

 

We require your child to attend a minimum of 5 sessions per week.  There is the option to add additional sessions or lunch clubs above your funded sessions and there are no restrictions to how many additional sessions or lunch clubs you purchase, as long as we have availability on the days you’ve requested.  Once sessions have been agreed, they cannot be altered during the term.  Additional sessions can only be added at the end of each term, ready for the start of the next term, and only if there is availability.

 

*Optional Hot lunches are charged separately as part of lunch club and information regarding hot school lunches is available from the main school office.

 

Payment for additional sessions, lunch club and hot lunches are invoiced half-termly, in advance.  You will receive an invoice during the last week of a half term for additional sessions and lunch clubs for the next half term.  Payment is due by the end of the first week of the new half-term. 

Prompt payment is required for all additional sessions and lunch clubs as per our charging policy.

 

Absence through sickness or holiday in term time will not be refunded.  You will not be charged for any additional sessions when the school is closed.

 

Additional sessions are charged at £15.15 per session and lunch clubs £5.05.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum

 

In order to be able to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum we require a minimum attendance of 5 sessions per week.  This enables us to deliver the correct curriculum and monitor their progress.  You will need to specify how many funded sessions you will be using per term on the “parent declaration form”.  Any sessions/lunch clubs that are not funded will be required to be paid for.

 

Our provision ensures all children have equal opportunities to access a varied curriculum which ever sessions they attend.  Wherever possible we suggest a minimum of 5 half day sessions, spread across 5 days.

Our Nursery operates a one term intake in September, deferrals of one term (January start) can be requested in writing for children born after 1st April, but most parents of summer born children currently opt to take advantage of the September start.

To confirm you are using your Nursery funding with us, you will also need to complete a ‘Parent Declaration Form’ termly.

 

There are also two new government initiatives to help working parents with childcare costs:

 

Tax-Free Childcare and 30 hours free childcare, which are two separate government schemes, to help parents with the cost of childcare. If this is applicable to you, you can apply for both through one, online application – the childcare service, www.childcarechoices.gov.uk

 

Invoices for additional sessions, lunch club and hot lunches are sent out half-termly, in advance.  You will receive an invoice during the last week of a half term for additional sessions and lunch clubs for the next half term.  Payment is due by the end of the first week of the new half-term. 

 

Prompt payment is required for all additional sessions and lunch clubs as per our charging policy.

 

Absence through sickness or holiday in term time will not be refunded.  You will not be charged for any additional sessions when the school is closed.

 

Additional sessions are charged at £15.15 per session and the session times are below.

 

Flexible Drop Off/Pick Up

 

We also offer flexible drop off and pick up at the beginning and the end of the day, to allow your child to settle more easily each day.   

 

Drop Off                                          Between 8.30am – 9.00am

AM Sessions Finish                        11.30am

Lunch Club                                     11.30am – 12.30pm      

PM Sessions Start                          12.30pm

Pick Up                                           Between 3.00pm – 3.30pm

 

We encourage your child to be independent by getting their own shoes and coats on and find the flexible drop off and pick up helps them with this.

 

Clothing

 

Children in Nursery are not required to wear school uniform but are encouraged to wear a nursery school polo shirt.  They can get rather messy and are also encouraged to go out to play in most weathers, so appropriate clothing is essential.  Please make sure that all your clothes and shoes are labelled clearly with your child’s name.  We also ask that you send in a pair of indoor shoes; which can be black plimsolls, trainers or sandals and appropriate clothing for outdoor play (eg: a suitable coat for the weather conditions).

Book Bags

 

We would like all children to purchase a book bag to enable them to bring home reading books.  This would help keep our books in good condition for all children to use.

 

Book bags and polo shirts can be ordered from Mapac®, our on-line uniform supplier on
