Throston Primary School

A Flying Start to Success

Early Years Times

The Early Years entrance is situated to the right of the main school entrance, under the canopy.



Morning Session – 8.45am to 11.45am

Afternoon Session – 12.30pm to 3.30pm

Please try to be prompt with both arrival and collection times as learning begins as soon as the children arrive. Children can become quite distressed if they miss the beginning of the session and the familiarity that it brings. Children are all allocated a key worker and they will start and finish each session in their key worker group.



9.00am to 3.20pm

We invite parents to come into school through the Early Years entrance. We open the doors at 8.45am which allows you to bring your child into the village 15 minutes before the start of the school day. Please use this opportunity to chat to the staff about your child and learning taking place within the village. Each morning, parents bring children into the Early Years, hang coats up and then bring their child to the designated class area. At home time, children can be collected from the designated class area within Early Years.




Flexible Nursery Entitlement

Some of our nursery children have a ‘flexible’ option for their sessions. This means that instead of staying

for either 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions, they stay for 2 ó full days (Monday to Wednesday lunchtime

or Wednesday afternoon to Friday). For these children when staying full days they are required to bring a packed lunch. Lunch is eaten within the Early Years Village. We employ an additional lunchtime supervisor to support our Nursery children over lunch. If your child is eligible for free school meals, a free packed lunch will be provided. To see if you are eligible for free school meals please contact Miss. Hatfield in the school office.


After school / Breakfast club

As well as our Flexible Nursery provision, we also offer extended services through our breakfast and

after school clubs.


Breakfast club runs from 8.00am until 9.00am

(Early Years children are escorted to their area at 8.45am for the start of their session) at a cost of £1.85 per session.


After school club runs from 3.30pm until 6.00pm at a cost of £4.20 per session.
