Give your little children a great start to learning their tables with these charming Plates, Bowls and Beakers.

The children get really involved with the characters and this generates a very strong interest within them to learn the tables, meaning they go off to their next school with a great head start.

The noticeboard might just be the hub of your school

A school noticeboard is usually bought for one reason. But that is not all a noticeboard is good for.

A school noticeboard is usually bought to communicate messages to parents where previous methods of communication have been problematic, or failed. But that is not all a noticeboard is good for. Indeed, the noticeboard might just be the hub of your school.

It provides parents with a topic of conversation and school staff with what can loosely be described as a teamwork activity – something which became apparent to Greenbarnes following the analysis of the results of a questionnaire distributed to schools.

To summarise, a school notice board is not just the responsibility of one, but the responsibility of many, and it not only creates a sense of cohesion among staff, but also among parents.

We have a range of styles of outdoor noticeboards which you can see on our website. Alternatively, please do call us on 01280 701093 and we’ll be pleased to discuss our boards, send you a brochure, and give any advice and guidance that you may require.

What do a high proportion of parents of nursery school children worry about on a daily basis?

Most parents would much prefer to be half an hour early rather than risk being fined for being late picking up their child/ren. Thus it might be that a crowd of parents regularly populate the nursery’s entrance long before the day ends.

Clearly this is a scenario which can be used to your advantage, for what do people do when they are waiting around? They read, everything and anything they can find – signs, posters, Ts & Cs….

Therefore, placing a noticeboard outside the nursery could be a very good investment, for there is no doubt that the notices will be read – making it perhaps the most effective nursery-parent communication system.

If you are thinking about buying a noticeboard to put at the entrance of the nursery, Greenbarnes provides a range of styles which you can see on The Noticeboard Shop.

What do nursery schools do in Leavers’ Week?

!cid_d095a47c046cd5a4f92373c31de551d5

In June 2016 the website Preparing for Leavers’ Week asked nursery schools, primary schools and secondary schools around the UK if they became engaged in any Leavers’ Week activities.  And if so, what they did, who took charge, and when they planned it.

All the answers are now in, and those of us conducting the research were really quite surprised by the responses.

Our biggest surprise came from the level of enthusiasm for Leavers’ Week activities in nurseries – it seems to us that this was far, far greater in nursery schools and nursery units than in primary schools.

We were also taken aback by the high level of responses which came in both from nursery schools and nursery units attached to primary schools.

98% of the nursery schools and units said that they did indeed engage in Leavers’ Week activities and gave us a lot of detail as to what they did.

Our questions also involved issues of who took charge of the arrangements and when they started making arrangements.

You can read our full report on Leavers’ Week in Nursery Schools on the “Preparing for Leavers’ Week” website, which also carries our results from surveys of primary and secondary schools.

I do hope you find the information useful. My colleagues and I will be in touch again next term as we develop the site further.  It is, I think, the first time anyone has ever gathered together information on Leavers’ Week from schools around the UK.
