COVID- 19 Symptoms
If your child has symptoms or anyone at home has symptoms please follow the guidance of self-isolating and booking a test. This is in line with Scottish Governments and Care Inspectorate guidance. If your child displays symptoms at nursery we will contact you to pick up your wee one, and seek advice from NHS Scotland.
With the current circumstances we are having an increase on personal hygiene and encouraging our children to wash their hands more often. They are supported to follow our routine of washing hands when they arrive, coming in from outdoor learning, before snack and lunch and after using the toilet. All our surfaces are regularly cleaned throughout the day by staff.
Can you please help us by following our social distance policy, all adults must remain 1 metre apart. The playground has been marked off for you to wait safely. When entering and exiting the nursery all our groups have allocated drop off and pick-up times. Please remember to wear a face covering. Thank you for helping keep us all safe.
At present we are operating in 2 bubbles.
Bubble 1 Green, Pink , Red , Blue, Purple and Orange Groups.
Emma, Carolann, Kim and Caroline will support Bubble 1.
Bubble 2 White and Yellow Group.
Chantelle and Hazel will support Bubble 2.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Newark Nursery School may at times experience some disruption to our service. When and if this occurs, we will keep all our children and families informed of all changes to our service.
When we are expected to provide a limited service, this will be done using the guidance and strict criteria set out by Scottish Government and our local authority’s education department.
We recognise the importance of maintaining high expectations in all areas of nursery life and ensuring that all our children have access to a variety of learning resources and the support they need to succeed.
At Newark we are a Rights Respecting Nursery. Article 28, every child has the right to an education. Article 31, every child has the right to play. We are working to help our learners to stay safe, stay learning.
Our Learning at Home policy sets out to share expectations and establish a collective understanding of what learning at home means for our Newark Family for the period of closure and/or further closures.
