Church services for nursery children

Following the last few whole school church gatherings, it has become clear that the extended time periods of these services have been challenging for some of our youngest children. As a learning experience, a range of our nursery boys and girls have found understanding and engaging with some of the content in these services difficult too, with their play-based learning having to be interrupted for such services. Furthermore, given that only one service can ever be held on the day, some of our children (morning or afternoon) would always be unable to attend.

With these factors in mind, we have decided that our nursery class children will not attend either the Easter or Summer Services this school session. We are however aware that, especially when older siblings in the school are attending the services, some families may wish to take their own child with them to the church when they themselves intend to go. In such a case, we are very happy for you to do so and would simply request that you notify the nursery class staff of this intention prior to that day.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to contact either myself or Mrs. Judy Brown (Principal Teacher) through the school office.
