Starting Nursery in September 2021


Dear Parents, 


Welcome to Dudley Wood Primary School Nursery.


In a letter dated Monday 10 May, your child has been offered a place in the Nursery at Dudley Wood Primary School in either the morning or the afternoon session. 


Times for the morning session are: 8:45am to 11:45am.

Times for the afternoon session are: 12:30pm to 3:30pm.

*Please note that it has not been possible to offer everyone their first preference.


We are now pleased to be able to confirm arrangements for your child’s start at Dudley Wood Primary School Nursery in September 2021.


The creation of positive relationships between home and Nursery, and getting to know each individual child as a unique and wonderful personality will guide our induction process. We look forward to meeting you and your child and welcoming you to our very happy Nursery.


As a school we are committed to smooth and timely transitions that allow each child to settle in, get to know their teachers and make new friends. We will help you to prepare your child to give them the best possible start in Nursery.


There is an area on our website in the PARENTS menu titled Starting Nursery in 2021. We will add to this page over the coming weeks and you will find suggestions for activities that you can do at home.


Our website address is: 


We can also recommend the website:  for simple fun activities that you and your child can do together.


Here are the arrangements for your child’s start at our Nursery in September 2021.


Dudley Wood Primary School is a Covid-19 secure environment and we can assure you that the safety and well-being of your child will be our first priority at all times.


From Monday 6th September to Friday 10th September we will arrange for you to visit school and meet with the Nursery teacher and key workers. These meetings will be an opportunity to discuss your child’s needs, feelings and interests. We will also be able to tell you all about the Nursery sessions and answer any questions you may have. We will, of course, conduct these meetings safely in accordance with government guidelines. During the week commencing 14th June 2021 Mrs Chatha-Lally, the nursery teacher, will telephone you to arrange the time to meet in September.


We do have a branded uniform for our nursery children. However, the wearing of uniform in Nursery is optional. During your visit to the school to meet the teacher in September and at any time during the school year, you may buy uniform if you wish. 


We have arranged 3 starting dates for the children so that children start Nursery in a smaller group. In a smaller group, we can be sure that we can spend more time getting to know your child on a one to one basis and give them individual attention. When Mrs Chatha-Lally telephones you, she will confirm start dates and times for your child.


The starting dates will be either Monday 13th September, Thursday 16th September or Monday 20th September.


In the meantime, if you do need to contact us during term time, you can call 01384 818690, or email

We will endeavour to respond as quickly as possible. 


Warmest regards,

Mrs Guest, Headteacher, Miss Price, Early Years Leader and Mrs Chatha-Lally, Nursery teacher.
