Dear Parents and Carers,
We are pleased to let you know that our own Blanford Mere Nursery will be up and running with effect from September.
We are in the process of recruiting staff for the provision. On a day to day basis the Nursery will be run by the new team, however, since the provision will be Governor led, these members of staff will be appointed by Blanford Mere Governors and will work closely with the existing staff team following current school policies.
This is a great opportunity for an exciting Nursery Provision. We will be taking children aged three and four; places for three year olds will be available for the beginning of the term after their third Birthday. Initially, we will provide 5 mornings each week with each session running for 3 hours; times to be confirmed when places have been finalised.
We would like to give our current parents the first opportunity to request a place in our brand new nursery. Should you wish to book a place for your child, then please contact the school office on 01384 818365.
After this date we will be advertising externally offering places to other interested families. If you have friends, family or neighbours who may be interested in reserving a place then please either pass on this letter or ask them to contact school. Please note that we can only offer places where families will be using their entitlement of 15 hours of funded Nursery provision with us. You will need to commit to this place once offered by signing and agreeing to a parent/carer contract with the school.
Please note that if we are oversubscribed then we will give priority to those parents requesting 5 mornings each week.
I look forward to the next stage of developments at Blanford Mere.
Mrs N Miller Headteacher
