Mrs Oxley and Mr Barr

    Welcome to Our Lady of the Wayside Nursery  


Mrs Oxley, Mr Barr, Mrs Treacy, Mr Girling, Miss Powers and Miss Searle 



 The Nursery children are now familiar with their learning environment and are settling in, beginning to grasp boundaries and routines. It has been great to see them make friends so readily.


A big 'Thank you' to you parents/carers for observing social distancing and waiting by the fence. Your children are now so independent hanging up their coats and storing their lunchboxes and drinks. Well done, everyone!






As we approach Half-term, we would like to thank you all for your support. We've had a lovely few weeks getting to know you all and your children.


School is closed from Monday 26th-Friday 30th October and will reopen on Monday 2nd November at the usual time of 8.45am. Our learning during this first week back will focus on Diwali as part of our Other Faiths Week.


A reminder that school is closed to pupils on Friday 6th November for the Feedback and Next steps Parent Consultations.


In the meantime, enjoy a great break!smiley
