Eaglesham Nursery Class Duty of Candour Report



Please ensure that your child brings a full change of clothes to nursery each day. If you think that your child may need more than one change of clothes then please send what you think will be required for your child.  Please ensure that all clothing, lunchboxes, shoes and jackets are labelled clearly with your child’s name. This really helps us!


All of the children have been enjoying snack time in nursery. A fruit snack is provided by East Renfrewshire Council so pupils should not bring a snack to nursery.


As you are aware, from August 2021 East Renfrewshire Council are providing a hot lunch to all children attending our establishment. The menu is on a 3 week rotation between now and October and can be accessed using the link below:

nursery meals from 4th October 2021

​Please note that on days when there is a vegetarian or meat option, all pupils who have not been identified as vegetarian will be served the meat option, unless you advise us otherwise.

​Although we would encourage your child to choose a hot lunch, if you wish your child to continue to bring a packed lunch then please feel free to do so. Please ensure that fruit is cut into small bite-size pieces and that grapes are always cut in half lengthways. Also, we are a NUT FREE ENVIRONMENT, so please be vigilant that all snack ingredients are free from nuts, including crackers and fruit bars etc.



Parents/Carers should administer all necessary medicines at home and only where this is not possible due to strict medical guidance and procedure should administration of medicine be requested during the nursery day. As such parents/carers should be aware that medication should only be taken at nursery where there is no alternative to this and this must be with the agreement of the head teacher. Parents/Carers must complete, sign and date an administration of medicine form (form AM1) prior to any medication being administered by staff. It should also be the case that where the head teacher has agreed to administer a pupil’s medication the educational establishment should not be administering the first dose of a new medication.

All medicine must be delivered to the nursery office (with form AM1), complete with the original pharmacy or dispensed label identifying:

  • Child or young person’s name
  • Date of dispensing
  • Name of the medication and strength
  • Dosage and the frequency
  • Expiry date
  • Quantity
  • Method of administration
  • Additional instructions

Entry and Exits

  • Extended Hours children can arrive between 8-9am and we will ask you to give us an indication of pick up time to support a smooth exit. If you are arriving at 8.45am, please come straight to the door as some core children may also come at this time – it’s OK, you’re not skipping the queue.
  • Core Hours children can line up at their group marker and we will admit all of the children at 9am.

The Core Hours children will be ready before 3pm so that we can have a smooth exit. We know that due to exit arrangements in the school, some parents/carers have opted for a slightly earlier departure between 2.40 and 3pm. All Core children must be collected by 3pm and we appreciate everyone’s compliance with this.


We take a daily register in the nursery. If your child is going to be absent, please notify the school office on 0141 570 7160. You can leave a message if the office staff are unable to take your call. If your child is not in nursery by 9.30am someone will call you to check the reason for their absence. This is a safety protocol that is carried out throughout all educational establishment in East Renfrewshire.
