Please read our June 2020 newsletter:
It has been a joy and a pleasure watching you grow and learn during your time at St. Peter’s Nursery. You are now ready for the new adventures, challenges and opportunities school will offer.
*** Every End Has A New Beginning***
Thank you to our parents, carers and families for choosing St. Peter’s Nursery to care for your child.
Please have a look at how our school will look when the children return in August. Our images show classroom / nursery layouts, corridor / reception signage and distancing measures and cleaning stations.
A transition event for P7 pupils will take place in St. Andrew’s Academy on Monday 22nd June. P7 pupils will then have an opportunity to attend a session in St. Peter’s on Tuesday 23rd June.
On both days, sessions will last for approximately an hour and a half, and parents/carers will be required to drop off and collect their child.
You will be notified of your child’s allocated time as soon as possible.
Please contact the school if your child has any underlying health conditions.
Please read the latest update on future learning plans from the Director of Children’s Services, Steven Quinn.
We will continue to offer a critical childcare service for the children of single parents who are key workers or for children with two parents if they are both key workers. We are also supporting children, young people and families where there is a need.
We have already contacted key workers and families who are currently using our service. If you think you meet the criteria for this support, you can find out more and how to apply on the council’s website.
Parents who already have children in our Early Years hubs are not required to make application again for summer provision.
Renfrewshire Council are gathering information about home learning. Your responses will help to inform the planning for August. It would be really helpful if you could complete this before 15th June.
Taking consideration of the blended approach to learning which is being planned as well as the increased amount of outdoor learning that we aim to deliver, we are suggesting a slight change to our traditional school uniform for August. We ask that pupils attend school wearing a red polo shirt, black sweatshirt and black leggings, joggers or comfortable trousers. Polo shirts and sweatshirts with our school badge are available from local school wear shops. Children should bring a suitable jacket/coat to school every day. They should come to school wearing trainers or other footwear suited to learning outdoors and will require a change of shoes, such as plimsoles for wearing in the gym hall. If your child is unable to tie their own shoe laces please consider Velcro fastening footwear to avoid unnecessary close contact with staff during the day.
We are aware that many parents like to have photographs taken of children starting school, and understand that this is a very important occasion, but we ask that you think carefully about purchasing uniform items that children may not get full use out of.
Earlier this month, Renfrewshire Council asked parents and carers to submit their questions on schools and nurseries. Thank you to everyone who took part, there was a phenomenal response with more than 1,000 questions.
Your most-asked questions were put to Steven Quinn, Director of Children’s Services, which you can see at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/coronavirus-schools. You can also find answers to many more questions there too.
Thank you for your continued patience and support for our school/nursery during this difficult time. We hope to see you back in our school/nursery as soon as it is safe to do so.
