We are writing to tell you about some exciting changes that will be taking place over the summer break. Subject to final planning permission we are going to have a brand new Early years building, that will contain areas to accommodate all reception and nursery children.
In order that this can be ready for our return in September we are going to close the nursery bubble and Mrs Chidwick’s bubble on Friday 17th July. This was the original end of term date and this just effects these two bubbles. We will then be emptying the Nursery building of all furniture.
To ensure that the new building will be ready for our children to start with everything in place all nursery and reception will be returning on Monday 7th September. That includes all of the children starting school for the first time and any children coming to us from other schools. Nursery will do their normal hours i.e. 15 or 30 hours.
All reception children will start full time from this day as we do not start children on part time basis, as we realise this can be difficult for parents with regards to childcare as well as knowing that the quicker we settle the children into a routine the easier it will be.
We cannot wait to get started in a new building especially designed with early years children at the fore and this is going to give children at Cloverfields the best possible start to their education.
Thank you for your continued support.
School places from 22 June to Summer
As per the Government guidance on 15th June, Enquire Learning Trust academies are preparing to open to more pupils where they have additional capacity to do so. Each Academy Principal is currently looking at their additional spaces and risk assessments to ensure that all protective measures for further smaller groups could still be met. Some of our academies may not have the space or extra staffing needed to open further.
In our school Nursery, Reception and Year 1 groups are full. We have two places Year 6, on a first come, first served basis- please contact school on Monday.
We are opening on Monday to Year two- there is one space left.
Key worker groups have only odd days remaining.
My wish but not a promise is that we are fully open in September.
Any newly returning pupils and parents Please watch our return to school video below:
Return to school - Monday 8th June

If you have changed your phone number please inform the office otherwise you will not get text messages. Please also communicate as widely as possible across families in an attempt not to leave anyone out of the loop.
The curriculum will be followed but we will be mindful of the need for frequent breaks and as much outdoor learning as possible. We have paid attention to what psychologists say in regard to how we can shape our curriculum and have taken note of their ideas and adapt them for our pupils.
