Welcome to

Your child will either be:

A ‘Morning Bumblebee’, or, 

an ‘Afternoon Bumblebee’,

or a ‘30 hours bumblebee.’

Our aim is to work with your child to provide a fun and exciting learning journey.

We will explore a wide range of themes and topics, all of which involve wonderful ideas and activities.

If you would like to know more about any of the information about nursery, or you have a question or concern, please feel welcome to come and speak to Mrs Tipper (Nursery Teacher) or Mrs Miller (Early years Leader) or speak to one of the Reception team.

Please note that Nursery have PE on a Friday.

Infant children must not wear jewellery.

Who will be working with my child?

Nursery has its own teacher who is your child’s Key Worker. Part of their role is to help ensure that every child’s learning is tailored to meet their individual needs, to help the child become familiar with the setting, offer a settled relationship for the child and build a relationship with you, the parents and carers. They are also supported in this by learning teaching assistants.

How to help your child

You also have a big role to play in this very important stage of your child’s development.

Encourage them to talk about their day.

Encourage them to talk in sentences.

Read the ‘Home Link’ letters (Link at top of page) so you can share their learning experiences in school.

Come to the Family sessions (a letter will be sent out with dates of the sessions)

If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of staff.

  Fabulous Family Sessions!

At Blue Coat Infant School we greatly value the partnership between home and school in supporting the children’s development.

As part of this we hold

‘family sessions’

where 1 member of your family (over 18 years old) can come and be a part of the children’s life at school.

Please do not bring younger brothers and sisters to these sessions, as they are a special time for yourself and your child to spend together.

It will be an opportunity to come and get busy with the children in the

‘Learning Labs’ where you can play together.

The activities may be related to a particular area of the curriculum, or to the current theme. The session will usually end with a story and rhymes.
