Our Weekly Newletter - Please read.



To make the day to day running as smooth as possible, please could I ask your help with the following:


  • Please could your child bring in a drawstring/PE bag with a change of clothes in. This can be kept on their pegs in Nursery each week. You could purchase a St. Matthews one from our website - these take up less room on the pegs than backpacks. Thank you!
  • We have so many items that need to be named in order to save time and confusion: drink bottles, lunch boxes, bags, coats and jumpers. Please can you ensure that you re-apply names as they wash off? Thank you for your support.
  • At the end of each session, we will try to have all of your child’s belongings ready. We will sign them out. If you have older children, please could they wait outside, to avoid any extra noise for the children waiting.
