Due to COVID restrictions and to keep you all safe, we understand it is hard for you as a parent to hand your child over at the gate and not be able to come into the room to see where they play or see them happily settled with their friends. It’s not easy for us in Acorns either and is certainly not how we would want it to be. Please be reassured that we would love to welcome you in to see the wonderful variety of activities on offer. One day we will return to sharing our outstanding provision with you in a face to face way.

  • For now, we kindly ask that you wait patiently at the gate before handing your child over.
  • We will ring you if your child is unsettled throughout their session.
  • No news is good news!

Over the next few weeks, we will be displaying photos of your children learning through play and enjoying their first few weeks in Acorns.

Please look out for our ‘introduction’ video on Facebook shortly. We hope you find it useful. 

Please also note Acorns new email address which you can confidentially access to communicate with the staff in Acorns. No worry is too small so do get in touch and we will do our best to address any issues as soon as possible.


Your children are very special to us and it is a privilege to look after them and help them enjoy their time away from you, learning new things which you will hopefully celebrate with them. 

Sarah (Headteacher) and Kirsty (Acorns Room Leader)
