Changes to drop off and collection - Sept 2018

Dear St. Luke's Nursery Families, 
 
To support a calm and settled start to the morning session, from September 2018, all children will be admitted from the Nursery entrance only - this also includes families with older siblings. As such to support effective positive staffing ratios, staff will no longer be able to take Nursery children or late Nursery children to the Nursery setting from our main school.
 
Similarly children attending the afternoon session are to be collected from the Nursery entrance only after older siblings have been collected from main school - staff are unable to bring Nursery children to the main school at the end of the day as this will lead to a reduction in our positive staffing ratios.  
 
Children with older siblings may arrive at 8.35am (not before) for the morning Nursery session which starts at 8.45, please drop off your younger child before bringing older siblings to school. Nursery children without siblings are to arrive from 8.40am. 
 
The main school bell is rung at 8.45am and again at 8.50am allowing plenty of time to bring older siblings to school on time.  Older siblings arriving after 8.50am into our main school will be marked as late 
 
Nursery Sessions are :
8.45 to 11.45 (Gates/bells will be answered from 11.40 and not before ) 
12.30 to 3.30 (Gates/bells will be answered from 3.25pm and not before ) 
 
** To support a positive learning environment and to reduce ongoing disruption to learning, Staff will be unable to answer the intercom before these times unless for medical appointments or illness - thank you in advance for your understanding.
 
Late pick ups 
Please be advised that due to a number of parents arriving late to collect children from our Nursery, we have made changes to our terms and conditions as each time this happens we incur staffing costs. As such we must now advise that if any parent arrives 10 mins or more after the session has ended there will be a £10 penalty fee for each child and each session - times will be kept as a record (where fines are left unpaid children may not be permitted to continue at the Nursery) 
 
** pls see attached amended terms and conditions or check our Nursery website page www.st-lukesprimary.com 
 
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.  
 
Best wishes
