ARC All Aboard Nursery: Information for Parents and Carers 
In these challenging times we must focus on our core purpose to do everything needed to keep our children and staff safe therefor the ARC All Aboard nursery will continue to follow the government guidance and notify parents of any changes as early as possible.

From Tuesday, 1st September 2020, ARC All Aboard nursery will be:

  • Working with families to offer nursery sessions for their children, inline with the government guidance.
  • Reducing contact between Children by implementing a "bubble" system 
  • Offering dual placements with other nursery settings - (following agreed individual risk assessments)  to ensure all full educational provision is being provided including all EHCP outcomes.
  • Following ARC All Aboard nursery risk assessment to minimise risks of COVID-19  within the setting.  

We will continue to be at the end of the phone to answer any questions and queries any All Aboard Parents or future parents might have.

As ever, we are grateful to the partnership with our families and community colleagues that enables us to pull together in the toughest of times.

We have also a Safeguarding Policy update: AAA CV-19 Safeguarding Update

 

Message from ARC Services Manager, Bill Rigg:

The ARC is pleased to be able to welcome Children and Young People back on site!

Following our summer break we will reopen on Thursday 3rd September. If you are expecting your child or young person to start with us in September we will be in touch on the 1st or 2nd to confirm session details.

We are following all government guidelines as well as working with schools to ensure that we are as safe as possible.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

 

PLEASE READ: Please be aware that there are many fraudulent emails/scams being sent at the moment pretending to be from schools offering refunds for school trips or offering payments for those families on free school meals. Please do not reply to these emails and do not email any personal information, such as bank details, to anyone.  If you are unsure about a telephone call, text or email claiming to be from BASIS, please check with the office first.
