Talking about Terrorism
Recent events in Manchester and London have caused concern for many people and can be a difficult issue to discuss. The NSPCC has issued advice to help parents talk to their children worried about such incidents. ‘Talking about terrorism: Tips for Parents!’
We are looking for Parent Governors. Could it be you? Check out our flyer.
Netherton Moss is governed by a mixed group of people who get together and make decisions for the school and the children. This group needs diversity so that ideas and thoughts come from different sources and angles. We believe that the parent’s view is of real importance to our work and the school can’t grow successfully unless we have people willing to be part of the governing body.
The governing body is made up of 12 people, 4 of whom are parents. We need volunteers to take up this position and help us do the right thing for the children in our care.
There is one meeting per term for the Full Governing Body, although you may be asked to attend 1 or 2 meetings to discuss specific matters such as the curriculum or finance. We would love to hear from you.
30 hours per week of free childcare
from September 2017
You may already be aware that from September 2017 many working parents of 3 to 4-year-olds in England will be eligible for 30 hours of free childcare – rather than the current 15 hours.
The 30 hours free is for 38 weeks per year – not 52 weeks of the year. It’s basically equivalent to school term times.
However, not everyone is eligible for 30 hour funding – but – everyone will still receive the 15 hours free childcare that is currently available. These are the eligibility rules for 30 hours free childcare:
We would advise that you check whether your child will be eligible.
Here at Netherton Moss, we are unable to offer the full 30 hours childcare in nursery per week.
We are able to continue to offer 18 hours per week (full days Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays) whereby we charge for Wednesday afternoons if you are not eligible for the 30 hours offer, and we will be able to signpost you to another setting for the remaining 12 hours.
The cost for the extra 3 hours child care on Wednesday afternoons will be £12 from September 2017.
