Westbury-on-Severn Church of England Primary School Preschool
We are delighted to announce that, from September 7th 2020, Westbury-on-Severn Church of England Primary School will be extending educational provision and childcare to preschool children aged 3 and 4 years old. We are all extremely excited about this, and our governors are working extremely hard to prepare our building for new arrivals.
Our offer to parents will be consistent with the existing vision and aims of our Church school, which acts as the heartbeat to our school. The school team and I are so excited about extending this to our pre-schoolers and our current pupils are equally excited to welcome new pre-schoolers from September.
With complete flexibility to suit the needs of you as parents, and an extended team of Early Years practitioners leading the learning, this is going to be a wonderful addition to our school. Whether you need morning sessions or afternoon sessions, five full days or a single day, we want to help and support you in your need. We will be offering 15 hours of universal funded childcare AS WELL AS 30 hours extended funded childcare for those eligible as part of this offer. Initially, we will be operating with the same times as our current school day, which is 8.45am until 3pm. This means that if you already have children at our school, you can drop-off at the same time, or collect at the same time. We will also be providing rich opportunities for family learning, that we hope will support and encourage you in the amazing jobs you do as parents. We will be providing more information about this in September.
If you do not currently have need for this provision yourself, please do share this with those that you know who might. The beauty of our pre-school is that it will be open to all. So, please spread the word and call us for more information on 01452 760303. Registration forms can be emailed to you, upon request. However, we are currently taking names of interested parties and this is filling up fast already! To begin with, we will aim to accommodate 12 children at each half-day session, so if you know what provision you might require, do let us know!
During the summer holiday we will be completely changing the landscape of the school and reorganising learning spaces so that all our amazing children will be able to return to fresh and exciting learning, in new and improved locations.
As you know, it has always been my joy and delight to serve the families of our Westbury-on-Severn community and surrounding villages of our benefice, and the staff and I look forward to welcoming our new preschool children and their families in September.
With warmest wishes,
