For Nursery Parents

Dear Parent/Carer,

As part of Woodfarm Cluster’s self-evaluation process, we are seeking parent/carer views of your child’s pre-school year in Nursery.

Please click on the link below to complete the survey – it should only take a couple of minutes to complete.  The survey will be open from today and close on Friday 6th May.


Many thanks for taking the time to provide us with your views.  It is very much appreciated.

Last Day of Term Arrangements

Parent / Carer of Nursery – P7 Pupils

Dear Parent / Carer

You are warmly invited to attend the end of term Summer Service in Orchardhill Parish Church on Wednesday 24th June at 11.00 a.m.  All pupils will return to school after the service to be dismissed at 1.00 p.m.  Please note that school lunch will only be available for free school meal pupils (which includes all P1 – P3 pupils) and the choice will be Quorn Hot Dog or Burger.

We would confirm that nursery pupils will be attending the Church Service and as the service is not expected to finish until about 12 noon could you please make arrangements to collect your nursery child at 12.15 p.m.   If this arrangement is not convenient then could you please collect your child from the nursery by 10.30 a.m. before the children leave for the Church.  Please note that there will be no afternoon nursery session as both the school and nursery close at 1.00 p.m.

We hope that you will have a lovely summer break and look forward to welcoming the pupils back for the new session at the normal time on Thursday 13th August 2015.

For Parents of Nursery Pupils

Parents Of Nursery Pupils Only – we have been asked by The Scottish Government to pass on this information

Dear Parent / Carer

The Scottish Government has proposed to increase the provision of free childcare to 1140 hours per year for children who are 3 or 4 years old, as well as for vulnerable 2 year olds who are eligible for the 600 hours free entitlement through the Children & Young People’s Act 2014.  With this in mind we are conducting a survey exploring how parents would wish to use this increase. The results of this survey will help guide policy on early years child care provision. In order for the survey to produce representative results it is important that we reach as many parents of 3 or 4 year old children from as wide a variety of back grounds as possible, this includes those who do not currently use free child-care provision.

The survey is available at the following link.
