Heads Up…26/03/2023

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Well, last week turned out to be a bit of an unexpected week with our Ofsted visitors! We had two inspectors joining us for the day last Thursday to evaluate how we teach at Tenterfield. Thank you so much to all those who managed to complete the parent survey, we really appreciate your wonderful feedback. I have not had the opportunity to sit and read it all yet, but when I do I will make sure it is shared with the team. The report will be available in about 30 working days time, and we look forward to sharing it with you then. 

Ducklings: we had to say goodbye to the ducklings on Friday. They have returned to the farm. We have loved the first-hand experience of watching them grow. 

Easter egg hunt – On Thursday 30th March we are going to ALL (15hr & 30hr groups) go forest school for an fun Easter session. We would like to invite you to join us too. 9am-10.30am. There may even be a special visitor! 

The pink group will have their own Easter fun in our nursery garden that day too!

Garden Day: On Saturday 22nd April we will have our annual garden make over day where staff, governors and parents come together to have a ‘Spring clean’ of our garden. 10am-12pm. Please bring gardening tools. Unfortunately children are unable to attend due to having tools and equipment in the garden. You will be rewarded with bacon sandwiches and a hot drink for all your hard work. 

Lucy’s Marathon update: The marathon is getting closer! Please support our lovely Governor who is training for the Marathon to raise money for Tenterfield. Every little helps, so if you haven’t donated already the just giving link is https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/tenterfield-nursery – thank you so much!”

Last day of term: A reminder that we close early on Friday. Our morning children will be collected at normal time, and our 30hr children will be collected at 1pm please.
