A message for our new families joining Crowlands in September in Nursery or Reception.
Following government guidance, we are still unsure about what September will look like in schools so at this point in time, we are unable to give you a start date for your child.
As soon as this changes we will update you.
We will be in touch soon to share information with you about your child's class and teachers.
Thank you for your patience at this difficult time
Make staff aware of medical issues asthma / allergies
You will find lots of additional information on our school website:
If you don’t have access to the Internet for any reason, please talk to someone in the school office.
Gate: except for the first day
Reception and Year 1 children enter this gate after us and the nursery door will be shut.
If your child will not be in school for any reason, please call the office and send in a note on their first day back.
The first few days….
Be prepared to stay – each child is different and we will discuss with you what is the best way to support your child to settle in – as we get to know them.
Support your child with self registration – coat, bag, and name card
Bring along a book and choose a seat in the classroom - this will be your child’s comfort zone when you leave
Always say goodbye - we will be on hand to distract and support your child
The first few weeks….
Find out – what the children already know and can do
Plan – opportunities to further their development in each area of learning
Observe and assess – continuous process
You will be invited to discuss your child’s progress and transition into Nursery within the first term. There will be opportunities for you to come and spend time in the nursery with your child in the second and third term.

Click here if your child is not confident in speaking English, it would help them if they were able to recognise the most common words we use in the first few weeks of school.
Click here for a story you can read to your children each day, for the 5 days before they come to school.
It will help them to know what is going to happen, who will be there to greet him, different areas of the classroom and reassures them that you will be there at the end of the day to pick them up and hear all about their day.
