We hold a small stock of uniform supplied available to purchase from the preschool. Jumpers are £10 and polo shirts are £7.50. Both the jumpers and polo shirts come in sizes 22 & 24 inches. Alternatively you can buy online from Tesco via this link:
Alternatively, some opt to go for the plain red t-shirts and jumpers etc from any of the supermarket school uniform ranges. The choice is yours but it is not compulsory to wear the Pre-School items, however we do ask children to wear appropriate labelled clothing and footwear for the time of year.
If your child is going to be absent due to a holiday or other day off, you will not be charged for the sessions providing one months' notice is given and an absence form is filled in and authorised by a staff member. To ensure each session's costs are covered, fees will still be due if the child is absent due to sickness (this can be reviewed in exceptional circumstances).
You can download a copy of the absence form from the link below

As a Pre-School we have a legal obligation to help safeguard children against suspected or actual 'significant harm'. Our employment practices ensure children are protected from the likelihood of abuse in our setting and we have a procedure in place for managing complaints or allegations against a member of staff.
If staff have any safeguarding concerns regarding your child they will keep a written record of any observations they have made. These concerns will usually be discussed with the parents / carers and a note of such discussions will also be made. If staff are suitably concerned they will refer cases to social services.
Our safeguarding designated officer is Louise Dack.
If you have any concerns about a child's well-being please speak to one of our safeguarding team. Alternatively you can contact MASH (Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub) on 0345 155 1071.
Communication and Complaints
We welcome feedback and suggestions on anything we may be able to do to improve, so please contact us with any questions, suggestions or comments.
We anticipate that any concerns that arise regarding the running of the Pre-School will be resolved quickly and informally either by talking with staff or a committee member. Should any informal discussion you have with a member of staff or committee member does not resolve your concerns, please put them in writing to the manager and / or committee. We are required to keep a record of any complaints that are received in writing and make a note of their outcomes.
