For your child’s safety we ask that:


If your child is ill, please let us know on 01229 841240. Children with stomach upsets need to be kept at home for at least 48 hours after the last sickness episode.

You are welcome to accompany your child into the classroom area at the beginning of the session. At the end of the session, please collect your child from the door.


Anyone wishing their child to attend must complete a registration form, available from the office accessed from School Street.

Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and age 5. This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years’ experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.

Nursery, Reception classes and childminders registered to deliver the EYFS must follow a legal document called the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

Organisation of Little Dragons


An Early Years version of the School uniform is available but is not compulsory. Please write your child’s name in all items of clothing and note that jewellery should not be worn. We use the outdoor environment as much as possible, so please send your child to Little Dragons in clothes appropriate for that day’s weather. For example, warm clothing, a warm coat and hat on cold days and a sunhat on sunny days.


During each session the children are served a snack, which consists of a piece of fruit or vegetable or bread stick for example. Each child has a drink of milk or water. In line with school’s healthy eating policy we ask that children do not bring any drinks or food to Nursery unless previously agreed.

Important - Please let us know if your child is allergic to any particular food products.


Each week, planning is displayed on the notice board. You can read what your child will be learning about and the activities they will be taking part in that week.

We hope you find the information contained in this booklet helpful. We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Little Dragons at St George’s C of E Primary School.
