During more normal times, our headteacher, Sarah, would be welcoming parents and carers of our new children face-to-face. This year, however, Sarah and the Filton Avenue Nursery School and Children’s Centre team have created a video to welcome to you all to our school and to allow you to meet our amazing team.
The video explains the procedures we have in place around keeping everyone safe during COVID-19, how to get the latest news about FANS, points of contact, our learning and more! If you have any questions, please do post them below in the comments and we’ll respond to you there.
Welcome from our Headteacher
A warm welcome to Filton Avenue Nursery School (FANS) and we hope you find our website useful, informative and inspiring. Here at FANS, we are proud to have served our local community for over 80 years as a Nursery School.
It is a privilege to take over as the Headteacher having been here for over 11 years as a room teacher, Assistant Head and SENco. I am passionate about continuing our work to provide an outstanding teaching and learning environment for your children and to ensuring our dedicated and experienced team offer you all the support you need in these challenging times.
I look forward to welcoming you all to our outstanding Nursery School whether you are returning or totally new to us – it is an exciting moment for you and your children.
With very best wishes,
