New Bridge Nursery School New Bridge - part of a bigger federation New Bridge is currently federated with Caversham Nursery School and in a soft (non legal) federation with Blagdon Nursery School. All three schools are led by Executive Head teacher Mrs. Joanne Budge. Each school has either a Head of School or Deputy Head who oversees the day to day running of the school. In the summer term 2019 the Governing Bodies of each school voted to enter a hard ( legally binding) federation from January 2020. A consultation document will be sent to parents in September with details and is a chance for parents to contribute their thoughts. New Bridge will be working closely with the Local Authority to ensure we remain sustainable as a Nursery School into the future. Senior Leadership Team

It is a specialised unit for children who are awaiting an assessment for an autism spectrum condition OR who have a diagnosis of autism.

Each child is given one additional session to make up their 15 hour entitlement. They therefore stay for one full day every week and parents/carers are asked to provide a packed lunch for their child on their full day. Please note there is currently a charge of 4.25 to cover the cost of the extra hour of childcare on their full day. Morning Session 9.00am - 11.30am Afternoon Session 12.30pm - 3.00pm If your child is in RAINBOW group then please drop off and pick up at YELLOW end Nursery places SUNSHINES: 30 hour (Full day) sessions Our 30 hour sessions are 9am-3pm, five days a week. You may be eligible for funding for the 30 hours if you/you and your partner are: in work - or getting parental leave, sick leave or annual leave each earning at least the National Minimum Wage or Living Wage for 16 hours a week - this is 125.28 if youre over 25. The lunch hour is included within the 30 hour entitlement and therefore you do not need to pay for your child to attend Lunch Club Full time session 9.00am- 3.00pm. If your child is in SUNSHINE group then please drop off and pick up at RED end Curriculum Tapestry Online Learning Journal All children have an individual on-line Learning Journal (called Tapestry) which records photos, videos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum requirements. This builds up a record of your childs learning experiences during their time with us. Please note that this is not a daily diary- it is a collection of meaningful observations that take place in nursery throughout the year which helps us to assess and monitor progress. Our priority is for the staff to spend time with the children; playing, supporting, inspiring and developing their learning. In addition to viewing our contributions, we encourage you to upload your own photos, videos and comments. You can also comment on observations that we have made. To access you childs learning journal at home you will need to use the activation link. We will give you this link once you have signed and agreed to our permissions and guidelines. Please take a copy of Tapestry: a guide for parents/carers for further details SEND Our staff are very skilled and have experience with supporting children with a wide range of

needs. We are an inclusive setting and we welcome children of all abilities into our school. If you feel your child needs extra support: Speak to your childs key person or to Joey (SENDCo) If a child requires more specified targeted support or outside agency referrals: a meeting will be set up with the SENDCO, parents and key person and an action plan will be put into place. This will be reviewed as necessary. Snowflakes Unit Our Snowflakes Resource, which is attached to the nursery, is a ten place unit for children with or awaiting a diagnoses of Autism. This Resource has a separate waiting list and admissions procedure from the mainstream Nursery and is for the whole of Reading. Lunch club Lunch Club runs between 11.30-12.30 and is run by nursery staff Children eat their lunch in the hall. When they are not eating they are

We ask for a voluntary financial contributions to our School Fund and gratefully suggest a donation of 10 per large term past contributions have funded classroom resources, experiences and outdoor learning projects.

We ask for every child to bring in a piece of fruit/veg or pack of dried food on their full day.
