Reception Places for 2017

If your child is due to start reception in 2017, you will need to get your applications in to The Woolwich Centre by 15th January 2017.  The Woolwich Centre are holding information sessions between Monday 9th January and Friday 13th January between 10am and 12 noon to help you with your applications. Children who attend our nursery setting do not automatically get a place in our reception class.



Like all things, the more you practice the better you become at reading.  With this in mind, I would like all families to really focus on making sure children read regularly at home.  All children should read for at least 20 minutes each night.  Our younger children do need an adult to read to as they may need support to sound out or make sense of the words they are reading.  Older children still need to read independently and it is helpful to talk to them about what they are reading.


Cold Weather

Forecasters have said that it is likely to get colder this week with the potential of snow.  Please ensure that your child comes to school suitably dressed for the weather; a hoodie is not a coat!  Also, with lots of coats, hats, scarves and gloves around the school, it is easy for items to become lost.  Please ensure that your child’s name is on each item of clothing.  Nightingale staff will always do whatever they can to help locate lost items and it is so much easier if they are named.  However, we do not accept responsibility for lost items of clothing.


Parent Survey

Thank you for your responses to the parents’ survey.  You have until Wednesday 11th January to hand them in to the office for the chance of winning £50 Tesco voucher.


Please note that the school will be closed to children on Friday 10th February as this is a staff training day.  School will be closed for the half term break from Friday 10th February and will reopen on Monday 20th February.
