Welcome to Long Row Primary School
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Long Row Nursery.
Please read the welcome booklet (see below) as it is full of useful bits of information and will answer many of your questions!
Just a few answers to some queries we have recently received:
Nursery children will be referred to as FS 1 and Reception children as FS 2.
Nursery (FS 1) children are active inside and outside all day and do not have formal PE lessons and do not require a separate PE kit. We do recommend sending them in comfortable shoes e.g. trainers as they will be outside playing and using climbing equipment etc.
We will supply drinks throughout the session and fruit will still be available for a snack for Children in EYFS (FS 1 and FS 2 combined). Children will have their own cup to use when at nursery so do not need to bring water bottles.
Please help to keep children routines by and dropping and collecting at stated times as lateness can cause much anxiety.
If you feel that your child needs spare clothes (this is often useful if they occasionally have toileting accidents), then please put them in a drawstring bag, which can be left in school on their peg. Please LABEL everything with their name.
Please do not send them with a bag each day.
Please get in touch if you require anymore help by calling 01773 823319 or email email@example.com
Mrs Smurthwaite is the Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator (SENDCO) at Long Row. She is a class teacher, but have additional training and experience in supporting children with additional needs. She works particularly closely with the Early Years Team to ensure early support is in place if needed.
As SENDCO she is here to support you as parents/carers, and school staff, with assessment of and support for children who may have additional needs or disabilities. We can then work together to ensure they are successfully and effectively included into the school community. The class teacher will always be your first point of contact. She can be contacted through the school office.
If your child has had additional support through outside agencies such as speech therapy either at home or in a previous preschool setting - do let us know as this will be important for a successful start to nursery and school.
