Information for parent of children who are new to Nursery and Reception in September 2020

Welcome to St Andrews C of E Primary School Eccles.

This page has been created to provide the parents of children joining us in September 2020 with all the information they could possibly need. 

St Andrews is a faith school and promotes the Christian values of love, honesty, forgiveness and respect through everything that we do.

Our Early Years Foundation Stage runs as a unit, this means that our Reception and Nursery children play together throughout the day. We pride ourselves on a child centered approach where children learn through play using their interests. This means that we tailor our lessons and provision according to your child's own unique needs. During your child's time in our Early Years unit our staff will support them to become independent, active learners and to build strong relationships with others around them.

We have friendly, experienced staff who are excellent at building strong relationships with children and helping them to feel safe and settled quickly. 

We have already started to prepare for meeting your children by ringing parents and nurseries to gather information and get to know each child better so that we will already know where their needs are and what they like in September.

As a reminder, please could all parents accept their Nursery or Reception places as soon as possible to guarantee and secure your child's class place. Parents also need to return the appropriate documentation to admissions as soon as possible by emailing and providing them with your child's birth certificate, a council tax bill and a utility bill from within the past 3 months. Please make sure that you take a high quality photograph of these documents when emailing admissions to speed up the process and deter delay. 

 Also, have a look at the links on the right hand side of this page, we have uploaded photos and a virtual tour of our environment for you to see along with links to useful websites. 

If you have any questions regarding your child's start in Early Years you can contact the school on 01617894853 or email me directly on 

 Kind regards, 


Miss Hill
