19.05.20 Letter to Parents and Carers a


18th May 2020
Firstly let me say how much I have missed seeing you all coming in and out of school every day and sharing your children with us. I hope you are all safe and well and coping in the best ways you can during these strange times. It has been lovely to speak to many of you and share your news. We have had one baby sister born last week and I know we are awaiting the arrival of a baby brother soon!

As you may have heard schools will be working on a phased reopening from the beginning of June. We are getting advice on a daily basis on how we can do this. This will not be all the children immediately and sessions will be shorter and not every day. Depending on numbers we may be closed for one day each week to allow for an additional deep clean.

The safety of the children, their parents/carers and my staff is paramount and therefore it is essential that we take the correct measures moving forward.

What will this look like?
During this week we will be ringing round to see who would like a place for their child. Some parents have already expressed they will keep their child at home as they will feel safer in doing so, some children need to be kept at home as they have underlying health conditions and some have a family member who is shielding and they need to reduce any risk factors.
I can confidently say the children will not be distancing in the building it will be impossible, but the staff will have to distance from each other and from you as parents and carers.
We are risk assessing all our operations and if any point we feel it is not safe we will stop the provision until it is.
If telephone numbers have changed please email and pass this message to your friends if you think they may not have received it.
If you use social media may I encourage to follow us on twitter @Cambridge_NS and Facebook
And our website is our main communications will be by text so please keep us up to date with your telephone numbers.

Nursery will look different.

We have removed dressing up clothes, soft furnishings and play items like sand and play dough.

Staff are wearing clothing protection, gloves and may choose to wear a cloth mask.

Entry into the school will be from the rear of the building and the children will be in smaller groups and so may not be in their usual room.

Entry will be accessed via a one way system with an expectation that all parents observe a 2 metre distance.

Children to be dropped off at the door of their allocated room and the staff will send them to wash their hands.

Pick up times and drop off times may be different and we cannot operate our 30 hour provision at this time.

The main entrance will only be accessible to staff.

We are in the process of implementing all of these changes at the moment and we will be in touch as soon as we have any additional information. Please bear with us as when guidance is updated changes may occur.

Can I finish by saying how well you have all coped and that we recognise the stress everyone is under and we will try our best to support you all we can. This is a worrying time for children in particular as their worlds have been turned upside down. Don’t worry about being a teacher at home as spending time together reading stories, watching telly together and having lots of cuddles is the best thing you can do, they will catch up with school if and when it restarts.

Please note that the school is currently being manned by a skeleton staff, providing emergency care for those key workers who are vital to the Covid-19 response. We are unable to deal face to face and may not be able to take telephone enquiries.

If you need to contact us please email and we will endeavour to respond within 24 hours, Monday to Friday.

If you have a safeguarding concern please telephone 01519342511/2516 and speak to a duty social worker.

We would like to keep in touch with our children and their families, if you would like to hear from us please send an email and include your child’s name to

Take care and stay safe!!
