Please see our policies. If you prefer to read a paper copy these can be viewed at Pre-school.

Due to changes in statutory documentation there are many changes to the policies this year. To ensure all the policies are consistent and match our procedures we are introducing the new policies over the coming months. Once fully implemented they will be uploaded to the website and the old ones will be removed. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

The new 2022 Policies are on the adjacent pages accessed via the menu above.
