Holy Cross Catholic Primary School

'Living, Loving, Learning Together'


Welcome to Nursery!


Hello,  I would like to welcome everybody back to nursery and extend a very warm welcome to those who are just beginning their time with us here at Holy Cross. We are looking forward to an exciting fun filled year and hope you and your children are too!

The children have been settling in very well, making new friends and having lots of fun! However, if you have any specific questions about your child please speak to one of the Nursery team.

Having as full a picture of the children as possible will help and support the children through the changes that will occur in their lives. Changes can be challenging to young children so it is vital that as a setting we ensure that there is sensitive care and attention given to the transition process.


Out and about I have….

We would like to continue to support your child’s interests from home, to inform teaching and to support children’s learning and development within the setting.

Your child has a special pocket of interest.

Please share items of special interest, or to celebrate special occasions or events at home.

We will use these to celebrate achievements and further develop children’s interests within the setting. 


Parental involvement

We believe that parents and/or carers play a vital role in their child's education. We will support your efforts at home and provide opportunities for you to engage in your child's education in school.

Our open door policy encourages interaction between yourselves and you child’s key person on a regular daily basis, making the transition from your care to ours much easier.

When families support their children with their learning they make better progress, so we are very keen to get you involved in school life wherever possible.  We encourage parents to bring their child into our setting each morning.  Parents are invited into Foundation Stage each morning from 8.45am, but please leave by 8.55am so that we can start our day.  We hold termly parents evenings and stay and play sessions.



The nursery uniform consists of;

·         Red Holy Cross sweatshirt

·         Navy blue Holy Cross polo T-shirt

·         Navy blue jogging bottoms.

Summer Uniform

·         Blue shorts

All of the above can be purchased from the school office with the exception of jogging bottoms. 

It is important that the children wear sturdy black Velcro pumps in order to gain access to our indoor and outdoor environment.

Children will have access to our outdoor environment regardless of the weather and will be provided with wet suits. We kindly ask that if your child has spare wellies, that they bring them to school.

At Holy Cross we take pride in our uniform and are proud to show that we represent Holy Cross Catholic Primary School! 



We have a morning snack each day at Nursery. The children help to plan and prepare their snack as part of our daily routine. We kindly ask for £5.00 a term to cover the costs of this activity.



Reading can be a special time for you to spend with your child. Research has shown that reading for as little as 5 or 10 minutes everyday can help support your child's educational development.
