Nursery 2021

We are excited to welcome you to our Nursery page for new parents and carers which we hope will give you and your child an insight into what life is like in Nursery at Hotspur.

We have given a lot of thought to the start of your child’s Nursery year to make the transition as smooth as possible. We hope the induction programme we have planned will provide lots of opportunity for you and your child to be welcomed, reassured and part of the Hotspur community from now until the beginning of the new school year. 


It is with regret that following the government announcement of continued COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to host our planned parent/carer welcome meetings on 28th and 30th June. 

Jenn Findlay, Deputy Headteacher, is recording a video presentation of the welcome meeting information which we will make available to parents as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to email the school office and we will compile a FAQ response for all parents to see. You will also be able to talk to the Nursery staff team at the Stay and Play session and during the transition period in September.  



Please join us  for a stay and play session on Friday 9th  July so your child can familiarise themselves with our Nursery staff and learning spaces. There will be a range of activities for your child to engage in and a chance to meet some of your child's classmates and their families.  Activities for your children to engage with will be set up inside and outside in accordance with our COVID-19 risk assessment.
