We welcome returning and new children, and their families into our Abercromby Community. We know many families will have worries about bringing their children to school during the Covid-19 pandemic, but please be assured we are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe whilst giving our children a normal and fun nursery learning experience. We cannot make it no risk, but together we can make it low risk.

We are making Nursery as normal as we can for the children, still providing them with high quality care and education. Have a look at this video to see what a fantastic time the children have here, even in a pandemic!




Here are ways we are working together to keep safe and keep our children learning:

  1. We have extensively risk assessed how to open safely. The full risk assessment can be found here.
  2. We are still following child centred settling in procedures, adapting our policy during the pandemic, but still allowing one family member to stay with their child, whilst they get used to Nursery.
  3. We have a new way in to school via the car park – follow the one way system via the green arrows in the car park, in through the side gate to arrive at the door into the classroom, from the garden.
  4. Please then walk out through the garden and the wide garden gate back into the car park.
  5. Please use the round green social distance markers when you are queuing to maintain 2m social distancing.
  6. Remember each bubble has new start and finish times, staggered to help with social distancing – see the times for your room below
  8. Check you are getting our ParentMail messages and that you can access Tapestry, our online Learning Journal.
  9. Make sure we have your latest contact details, and the details of two other contacts.
  10. We will provide Remote Education when the class bubble, or whole school has to close due to Covid infection.
