  1. Ordering consumables

    Hi I just wondered where you order your supplies from? Paint, paper etc.
  2. What is your title?

    Hi I just wondered what your titles are if you are part of the management team? Are you simply the manager or something different. TIA
  3. Questionnaire

    Hi I would like to do a short digital questionnaire to parents about the setting. Has anyone used one before and what sort of questions did you ask. Struggling to narrow it down
  4. Nursery systems

    Hi I am looking to change our book keeping systems to an easier model. Please can I ask what systems you use for finances, emails etc TIA
  5. Appraisals

    Thank you. Can I ask what you feel the benefit is between the two? Would a supervision suffice? Or should we be going through Job description etc in an appraisal rather than a general catch up in a supervision. Felling confused as to what to do?!?
  6. Hi Do you know of any stories with positional language in them please?
  7. Appraisals

    Hi I just wondered if it is a requirement to have an appraisal or just a supervision? Sharron
  8. I have sat or a while looking on the internet for fresh fine motor activities and drawing a blank! Please can anyone share how they develop fine motor skills and what opportunities they provide. Thanks
  9. Parent visit week

    Thank you Rebecca. DO you have anything out for parents to see learning intentions?
  10. Hi we have been thinking of inviting parents in to stay for a morning with us to share what we do in a session. I wondered if anyone has done this before and how they prepared for it? I was thinking of having information in areas of the provision for parents to read what learning could take place. Thanks in advance
  11. pupil premium record keeping

    Many thanks for this I noticed some key ideas of areas coming though such as CPD, Curriculum, Life experiences and home links. Are these specific areas to focus in on? For example if I had a child who wanted to attend an additional session such as music and it was chargeable, I could use the money for this. Or a child that struggles with toilet training I could buy some resources or lump the money towards training needs for staff? Just to clarify I need to identify children, the amount eligible, what the setting will do, what is the impact .....If that makes sense?!?
  12. Hi I am going round in circle trying to find a way to record and monitor our pupil premium children and how we spend the money allocated. Please could anyone direct me to a site or share how they do it please? I am turning greyer by the hour!​
  13. Do you delete children or deactivate children at the end of each academic year? :rolleyes: I don't know which one to do.
  14. Hi I wondered if anyone could recommend a healthy setting scheme we could be involved in? We have real trouble with lunchboxes and felt if we have a scheme that parents could be involved in then it would take the heat out us 'preaching!' Thanks
  15. Hi Please could anyone help me with where we can find a schmeme to promote healthy eating. Our setting is a preschool and children have lunch boxes but they are getting worse with the contents. TIA
