Firstly, welcome to St Nics!
If this is your first experience as a parent at a primary school, it can be pretty nerve wracking at the best of times and being on lockdown isn't going to make it any easier! For those of you who have done this before, this time will be different.
Although we have dates in the diary - a new parents evening, 'stay and play' dates and the Teddy Bear's picnic, who knows whether any of those will be able to go ahead. However, we are going to do everything we can to help you and your children settle in and be ready to start school in September.
We have been thinking through how we can support you and your children in transition from nursery school to primary school in these difficult and unusual circumstances. Exactly what we do will depend on how the world changes in the next few weeks and months but our first contingency is to record a video presentation to go through the information we would have shared at the new parents meeting. We will do that soon and post it o this page.
We will put all of the information that we would have given out on the evening here, but we will also post it to you. In order not to overwhelm the local post workers, we will probably send them out over a few weeks.
We will also need set up an e-mail distribution list so we can get information out to you electronically and keep you informed about arrangements for the rest of this term as circumstances change.
What We Need From You
If you wish to take up your offer of a place at St Nics, could you return your acceptance form electronically, by post or by dropping it in to school when you are out for your daily exercise. There will be a box inside the main entrance, though the office is not currently staffed all of the time.
Could you also make sure we have a current e-mail address for you so we can set up that distribution list?
I hope to see you all soon but, in the meantime, stay safe. Take care.
