Ryesings Pre- School class- Applications for admission to the pre-school are made directly to the school. Please contact Mrs Sheridan Martin in the school office for an application form. We welcome visits to the pre school.
Nursery classes. In the Spring term before your child is due to start Nursery School, parents should receive a booklet from Herts County Council with information about how to apply on line for a Nursery School place. Mrs Martin in the school office will be happy to help you to make your application if needed.
In order to help you make your decision, prospective parents are welcomed and encouraged to visit the Nursery during session times. A member of staff is always made available to explain our school layout, areas of work, and methods. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS), recognising each child as an individual and helping them on the road to independent learning. Active learning is essential - with the support of trained staff to encourage further thinking and discovery.
Once you have accepted your child's Nursery place online, we will contact you to find out your preference for an AM or PM session.
For families new to the school, with children who have not attended our pre-school, we offer home visits. These visits are an invaluable opportunity for us to get to know each other. The children are often really excited about the teachers coming to their home and this enables us to develop strong and trusting relationships with you and your child as quickly as possible.
Parents are also invited to re-visit the school with their child at one of our "Open Afternoons". This is an opportunity for you and your child to experience the Early Years provision and have a real "hands-on" session. At this time you will also collect a "Welcome Pack" which contains useful information about the school.
There is another opportunity to visit, with your child, the day before he/she is officially admitted. Other family members are also welcome to join in the visit, eg: Grandparents. During this visit the head teacher will run an induction session for parents and carers.

To meet the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998, schools previously needed to issue a Fair Processing Notice (FPN) to pupils and/or parents summarising the information held about pupils, why it is held and the third parties to whom it may be passed on. The Information Commissioner has recommended that the term 'Fair Processing Notice' be replaced by 'Privacy Notice'. The DCSF is therefore adopting this approach in its data collections from 2010, and has reviewed the whole process of issuing Privacy Notices. The new approach is that a single, short and easily understandable Privacy Notice will be provided to pupils and staff by the school or LA. If you would like to read a copy of this document please use the following link. Privacy Notice.
