The Nest

Welcome to The Nest:

  • Hello, my name is Claire Gough. I am the class teacher at The Nest. Rebecca Halliwell is the full-time Higher Level Teaching Assistant and Maria Evans is our part-time Early Years administrator.
  • Our topic this term is ‘This Is Me’. This is a perfect topic for us all to get to know each other and our families.



The Nest School Day:

  • Children can be dropped off at 9.00am
  • Pick up time will be 3.00pm. Children left behind after 3.15pm may be asked to join After School Club and a charge will be applied.
  • Please continue to use the side gate at The Nest as it is safer away from the car park.
  • Each day the children need a coat, water bottle and packed lunch.
  • Suitable footwear – every day we will encourage the children to take part in physical activities, so they need comfortable, safe footwear to do so.
  • Slippers can be left in school for children to change into.
  • All children need to have wellies and waterproofs in school, to take part in outdoor learning which will be timetabled on a regular basis.
  • All clothing, including outdoor clothing needs to be named.


Reading and Learning at home:

  • Daily reading – Please share a story with your child every day.
  • Information and activities will be shared on Dojo. Please do make sure you are connected to the Class Dojo so that your child does not miss out.




ParentPay can be used to pay school meals and for any trips / visits that are planned in school.


ParentPay is also used to give permission for activities beyond the daily curriculum offer, including for trips, visitors or other enrichment activities.


If you need any help or support setting up your ParentPay account please contact the team in the office who will be happy to help.



Keeping in touch:

We will continue to use Dojo as a way of keeping in touch. 


We will do our best to respond in a timely manner but please bear in mind that during the school day we are focused on teaching and learning with your children, and we do not monitor Dojo throughout the evening.


If you have an urgent request/message, please contact the team in the office.
