Governor Feedback (FGB) July 2023

With a positive end to the financial year, Governors have been able to focus discussion on the bright path ahead to support all the staff, children and families with new team dynamics and Early Years Teacher joining us in September. Empowering the team to offer parents knowledge on how attending nursery greatly improves children’s future educational success.

Staff Leaving Windsor

Dear Parents and carers, 

Following a staffing restructure within the school, we are sad to be losing Lynn, Dal and Rachel who will be leaving the school at the end of the summer term. They will all be pursuing new and exciting careers and as a school we want to wish them the best of luck in their new positions. Their last day with the children will be Friday 21st July and we hope you will join us in celebrating their considerable number of years working with the Windsor community and to give them your personal good wishes.

Governor Feedback (CC)

“When visiting the nursery I was delighted to see how friendly and outgoing the children are. The centre is very well equipped to meet the needs of all children, particularly those with SEND. The children were eager to approach and speak to the headteacher, and staff. Seeing first hand, the exciting outdoor areas and the equipment being so well used by the children made this a very worthwhile experience.”

Me, my world and my imagination

Learning that the world is bigger than a child’s direct family and home is another important area of learning for young children and forms a crucial aspect of our curriculum.

We do this through embracing and exploring the wonderful natural world around us, learning through sources of information such as books, stories, rhymes, the internet and of course from each other. Mastering how we can learn about things,  have control over materials and test out theories builds up our skills and knowledge which in turn continues to build up our ‘I can do it’

Enjoying being with others

Another crucial part of all early learning is the joy that being with others brings. Knowing how to get along with others, communicate with them, care for each other and learn together are an essential part of our curriculum. Play becomes much more fun when its shared with others who enjoy our company.
