Kiveton Park Nursery, based at Kiveton Park Infant School, is holding an Open Evening. Come to see our amazing Early Years provision and meet the staff working in our Foundation Stage.

From September 2018 KPI Nursery, at Kiveton Park Infant School, is looking to offer term time places to any child from the day after their 3rd birthday. If this is something that you’d be interested in, please come to our Opening Evening on Wednesday 21st March or call school today on 01909 770303 to talk to a member of staff about the options for funding or costs. All you’ll need is your child’s birth certificate and some general information about your household income and we will be able to advise you of when your child could start and any funding you might be eligible for.

A Message from The Executive Head

Following a challenging day of unpredictable weather, I wanted to thank those parents that have supported school in the difficult decisions that have had to be made. Where possible all the local schools made the same decision of a phased closure in order to reduce the impact of lots of traffic being on the roads at the same time. The Local Authority expect schools to stay open as much as possible, despite poor weather conditions, and to have only closed fully 50 minutes before the end of a normal school day, I feel we met those expectations. I would also like to thank all the staff who made opening school possible by travelling from as faraway as Doncaster. When making a decision on when to close, I also have to take the staff’s travelling time into account.

Based on the fact we are expecting sub-zero temperatures overnight and throughout the day tomorrow, I have made the decision to postpone World Book Day celebrations until Monday 5th March. This will allow you to wrap your children up warm for school tomorrow.

As we are not due anymore snow, it is my hope that we will be open as usual tomorrow. However, I will assess the situation in the morning and then confirm this via our various communication methods by 7:30am, possibly opting for a later start to enable staff and parents to make their way to school safely in what are likely to be icy conditions.

Kind regards

Mr Krabbendam
Executive Head teacher
