Little Kenelm's Notice Board for Parents

Letters from parents May 2021:


"I just wanted to say how lovely yesterday’s pre-school drop-in hour was.

The welcome that myself and my daughter Bridie Hodge received from Mrs Finnegan and Mrs Ray was so lovely and made us feel very relaxed.

Bridie had a lovely time and she is really excited to start her pre-school journey in September." with OLSK.


Kind regards,

Caroline Hodge





"My partner and daughter, Isabella attended Little Kenelm's Open Day this week and I just wanted to thank the staff for making it so special. 

Isabella told me how much fun she had when she got home, in great detail! She cannot wait to come back and we are so happy that she got the opportunity to visit." 


Thank you again,

SPACE ART DAY - 08.01.21

What better way to start a new topic with an art day! 

We're going to be exploring different textures to create representations of each planet so please can the children come to school in old clothes that you don't mind getting messy! 


Thank you,

Miss Mallin x

As of January 2021 we are opening our Pre-School full time! How exciting! 

Morning session starts at 8.30am

Morning session ends at 11.30am

Afternoon session starts at 12.30pm

Afternoon session ends at 3.30pm


Please note: children attending our Pre- School must be toilet trained before they arrive! 


Sessions can be taken as full days, morning sessions or afternoon sessions. If your child is staying for the full day, there is a small charge for the lunch hour and you will need to provide your child with a lunch box. For more information, please contact the school office and ask for Mrs McNarry. 

Please be punctual at the beginning and end of each session. It is also important that all parents are available during the Pre- school sessions to be contacted if necessary.

For the safety of our Pre-School staff, please could all adults wear a mask when dropping theor children off in the morning. Thank you, Miss Mallin x

03.10.20 - This week we will be discussing our families, please could you bring one picture of your family into school to share in class. Thank you, Miss Mallin x 

As we can’t have parent & teacher meetings to update you on your child’s progress, there will be an Autumn term report coming home the end of October. This will include how the children have settled into Pre-School and any targets to work on at home.

Thank you for being so understanding, stay safe. X

August 2020


Please can you bring a small bag of spare clothes with your child when they start Pre-School, this bag can stay at school on their peg until it is needed. Thank you.

July 2020


The information below gives you further details of start dates, timings due to COVID-19.


Punctuality is paramount; if you are late, you may be asked to wait until all other children have entered the school building, which will be after 9:15.

Little Kenelm’s Pre- School: start 8:30am finish 11:30am *one parent can escort them into Pre-School* 

If you have a school age sibling in KS1 or KS2, once your child is placed in Pre- School, please exit the playground and wait at the green gates until 8:45, when your child/children can then come into school.

Whilst I appreciate that this is not ideal, these are the conditions we are required to put into place to protect everyone, until the Government advises us differently.
