Useful Information

Ofsted

Our Pre-School is registered with Ofsted who inspect us regularly.  Our most recent inspection took place in July 2016 when we were awarded 'Good' in all areas.

The full report can be viewed on the Ofsted website www.ofsted.gov.uk

Parental Involvement

We want to ensure that our parents and families have a close working relationship with our staff and committee. Parental and family involvement engenders a sense of community within our Pre-School and we always welcome suggestions for improvement.

Parents, carers and, of course, grandparents are always most welcome as volunteer helpers in session – your help with the children is invaluable.  The children get very excited when it's their turn to introduce Mummy, Daddy, Granny or Granddad and you'll have fun too.

Each year the Pre-School holds a variety of different events for our children/families.

These may include:

  • Spring Fair

  • Children's parties

  • End of term play (morning children)

  • Easter Hat Parade

  • End of year party and picnic

  • Sponsored events

We hold parent consultations in November and May each year.

 

Clothing

We have St Martin's Pre-School sweat-shirts and t-shirts which are available to purchase for your child.  We provide protective clothing for the children to wear when they play with 'messy 'activities and water.

We require you to provide a change of clothing in your child's bag, including underwear, as children may occasionally have accidents or become wet at water play or muddy if they have been outside in the garden!

If your child is not yet potty trained it is essential that you provide nappies, wet wipes, cream and changes of clothing for your child each time they attend.

 

We encourage our children to be independent and look after themselves.  This includes putting on and taking off outdoor clothes.   It will really help your child if you can provide clothing that is easy for them to manage.

Please ensure that all clothing and bags are clearly labelled with your child's name.
