Welcome to Nursery

WELCOME!

It is my privilege to welcome your child as a Nursery member of our School Family.

On this page you should find the information you need before you child joins us in September. Please complete all forms in the ‘New Starter Data Pack’ you will be sent and return to the school office ASAP by post or by hand (following the current social distancing guidelines).

If you have any further queries you can also contact school by telephone/email:

t: 01925 492422          e: christchurch_primary@warrington.gov.uk

PLEASE NOTE: During the current COVID19 situation, our usual arrangements for induction have changed and you can read more about this in the documents here. September will hopefully bring a reversion to normality and so most of the information enclosed with this letter refers to ‘life as normal’. If this proves not to be the case, we will adapt as we have currently, and communicate any changes to you in good time. Stay safe!

My highly-skilled colleagues across the staff and I have one mission: We will look after your son or daughter to the very best of our ability. We will do our very best to educate them to the highest standards they can reach – academically, socially, physically, morally and culturally. We will prize greatly the development of their good character. We will work with you to achieve these goals, in partnership together, so that your child will be ready to leave our Nursery prepared completely for the next step on their life’s journey.

We can’t wait!

Yours Sincerely

Ian Williams         H Roberts                    K Kirkham

All about our Nursery

We are always busy in Nursery! The children in Nursery learn through cross-curricular themes, interwoven with the Christ Church CE friendly and caring Christian ethos, that are designed to follow the children’s interests and challenge each child to progress onto their next steps.

Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow, therefore forming a strong partnership between home and Nursery is vital. We nurture this partnership by providing many ways for parents/carers to communicate with the Nursery team and share their child's achievements at home/Nursery. 

Play is the cornerstone of our Early Years curriculum. Through supervised play children are encouraged to explore, develop, imagine and investigate their surroundings in order to start to understand the world around them. Practical experiences are incredibly valuable and appropriate at this stage of learning. Play provides important opportunities for learning in many ways; observation, exploration, discovery and communication. These opportunities are developed through both indoor and outdoor activities.

We are passionate about developing the children’s love of books and stories so we do place an emphasis on the children developing a positive relationship with literature. We also ensure that our children enjoy maths using a blend of fun, engaging games and guided activities, providing the children with a firm basis of understanding on which to build their later knowledge.

Teaching in Nursery is an absolute pleasure, laying the building blocks for a smooth transition into Reception and it is a joy to watch our young children develop into happy, confident children who feel set to succeed on their journey through Christ Church CE Primary School.

CLICK HERE FOR CLASS FACEBOOK PAGE 

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU CAN 'FRIEND REQUEST' YOUR CHILD'S NEW CLASS FACEBOOK PAGE ANYTIME AND THE CLASS TEACHER WILL RESPOND TO YOUR REQUEST AT THE START OF THE AUTUMN TERM. PLEASE ALSO SEND THE PAGE A PRIVATE MESSAGE STATING YOUR CHILD'S NAME. 

NB: PARENT OR CARER enquiries only – children should not use this method to contact class teachers.

Dear children, Parents and Carers: our online safety teaching emphasises that internet use always comes with risks; it is all about what we do when we come across something online that worries or frightens you. Teachers have judged all the links here to lead to safe online learning, but not everything on the platforms (such as youtube) is safe of course. So parents, monitor your child’s online activity and if you are concerned about any content they access, report it via the CEOPS button on the safeguarding page or home page of our website. Children, do the same.

 

ACCESSING MS TEAMS FOR CHILDREN

Please see below 'Quick Guide to MS Teams for Parents 2020' guide as to how your children can set up themselves ready to interact with their teacher.

All children with current log-ins will automatically be logged in to their new September 2020 Class when they access the system. 

Please note that children will need to access MS class team pages in the event of a local lockdown or if individually self-isolating. 

Children will also need to log-in to the system. These log-ins consist of a 4 digit number which will form the start of their email address, and a password. PARENTS / CARERS NEED TO ASK YOUR CHILD’S CLASS TEACHER, VIA THE FACEBOOK LINK ON THIS CLASS WEBPAGE, FOR THEIR UNIQUE  4-DIGIT LOG-IN CODE AND PASSWORD.

e.g Joe Bloggs is given code: 1234,  therefore email address will be 1234@christchurchprimary.warrington.sch.uk. Every child should add this exact e-mail address to their 4-digit log-in code.

Password:   Blog34

Please note:

Third parties cannot contact your children via MS TEAMS as it is an account password-only system. However, children can send messages to each other. It is your responsibility to supervise your children’s use of MS TEAMS and to remind your children that they must remain respectful of school rules and expected behaviour standards in relation to any such messages. NB: school IT admin have access to all messages. Thank you.

Children should not try to individually video-chat or telephone staff, as for safeguarding reasons staff cannot interact 1:1 with a child in this way - any questions should be posted on the class 'General' chat please. Also, whilst MS TEAMS is a secure site, you should only allow your child to upload pictures of themselves to MS TEAMS if it is relevant to a learning activity or task they have been doing or something of clear and ‘innocent’ interest, they are suitably dressed and you are aware that other children, despite our instructions to the contrary, may have the capacity to copy pictures of your child and use them in other applications.

Nursery Attendance

Our aim is to create a culture in which good attendance is 'normality' and valued within a nurturing and supportive learning partnership with parents /carers.

At Christ Church CE Primary School we believe good attendance is essential if children are to be settled and take full advantage of the learning and development opportunities available to them.  At a young age continuity and consistency are important contributors to a child's well-being and progress. We believe regular attendance at nursery also sets up good practice for statutory school.  Without good regular attendance, our School will also lose vital funds to finance our great staff: children ratio - which makes such a difference to every child’s learning and development.

Please support us in making sure we get the chance to teach your lovely children every day!

EYFS - Statutory Framework & Guidance (Early Adopter Versions)

Early years foundation stage (EYFS) reforms early adopters scheme: exemption direction for academic year 2020/21 for Christ Church CofE Primary School Padgate, Warrington

Under The Early Years Foundation Stage (Exemption from Learning and Development Requirements) and Childcare (Exemption from Registration) (Amendment) Regulations 2020, the Secretary of State for Education grants exemption from the following sections of the 2017 Early Years Foundation Stage statutory framework:

i) The educational programmes under EYFS paragraph 1.5; and

ii) The early learning goals set out on pages 10 to 12 of the EYFS; and

iii) The requirements set out in paragraph 2.6 to 2.11 of the EYFS relating to Assessments and moderation at the end of the reception year – the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile – which requires settings to complete the Profile and submit the same to the local authority.

As a requirement of participation in the EYFS reforms early adopter scheme, you must instead follow in full the EYFS reforms early adopter framework (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-adopter-schools-eyfs-framework).

Early adopter schools are able to disapply specific requirements of the revised EYFS in line with other non-early adopter schools in the event of legislative prohibitions, restrictions or requirements being applied as a result of coronavirus where it is not ‘reasonably practicable’ for those schools to comply with those requirements. (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-years-foundation-stage-framework--2/early-years-foundation-stage-coronavirus-disapplications)

The safeguarding and welfare requirements of the 2017 EYFS will continue to apply and have been included in the EYFS reforms Early Adopter framework.

At the end of academic year 2020/21 the School will be required to complete the EYFS Profile as set out in the EYFS reforms early adopter framework for all children in the reception cohort. This data will be required to be submitted to the local authority.

The direction granting the exemptions and modifications will be in place from 1 September 2020 and ending on 31 August 2021. It applies to a child in the reception class and, where applicable, in the nursery class as defined in the regulations.

Notes: “Reception class” means a class in which education is provided which is suitable to the requirements of pupils aged five and any pupils under or over that age whom it is expedient to educate with pupils of that age.

“Nursery class” means a class (i) in which education is provided which is suitable for children who have not attained compulsory school age; and (ii) which is situated in a school that also has a reception class that is participating in the EYFS reforms early adopter scheme.
