Sweet Peas


Closure of Sweet Peas (our two year old nursery)


I am writing to inform you that the consultation period has now ended.

I am writing to inform you that the decision has now been made to close Sweet Peas at the end of this summer term.

As mentioned in the previous letter, this has been a difficult decision and is not one that has been taken lightly.  Unfortunately the funding we receive does not cover the operational costs of the nursery.  The provision is running at a significant loss and the deficit is continuing to grow.  The nursery is not sustainable and therefore we face no other option but to close the Provision.

Children who will be turning three before the 31st December (rising threes) will be offered an early place in our school nursery in the Autumn Term 2018.

For those parents whose children will be turning three after 31st December 2018, the Children's Centre will be available to support and signpost you to alternative provision available in the local area.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come in to The Spinney or the school to speak to a member of staff.
