Working in Partnership with you
We recognise our parents as their child's primary educators and will work in partnership with you, to support your child's learning.
Home learning - Our setting has Activity bags and Story sacks for you to borrow. They include everything you need, to play with your child and continue their learning at home.
Newsletter - Every term, you will be sent a newsletter to let you with the theme of the current term, remind you of dates for your diary, and inform you about news and upcoming events.
Facebook - Please like our Facebook page to follow us. We use our Facebook page to remind our parents of important dates and to share urgent information such as snow closures with you.
Parents in our setting
Join us for a session - Parents are always welcome to join us for a session to play with the children and join in with our activities. Please let us know if you have a talent or skill you would like to share with our children, or if you would like to help us celebrate a festival of your culture.
Parent Stay and Play Days - We organise stay and play days for you to come and join your child in a session and play with them. This is a great opportunity to get to know the staff and your child's friends and to have a chat with your child's key person.
The Parent Committee - Allsorts is a registered charity and relies on the support of parents on the management committee. The committee meet once a month to discuss important decisions, manage the settings finances, staff and policies and procedures, and to organise fundraising events. New volunteers are always welcome. To join or find out more, please speak to any member of the committee or to a member of staff.
Learning opportunities for our Parents and Carers - Allsorts provides information and access to courses for parents and carers that are running in the local area or online and has excellent links to the Children’s Centre in Royal Wootton Bassett.

Like all Early Years settings, Allsorts has a duty to help safeguard children against suspected or actual significant harm.
Allsorts Pre-school is part of the Wiltshire Police ENCOMPASS project, where we may be informed when a child has been affected by a domestic violence incident. Information is shared in the strictest confidence to allow us as a setting to make provision to support the child and family affected.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Tracy Stephens, our Manager, and our Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Michelle Dodd, her Deputy. If you are worried about a child or a member of staff, please speak to Tracy or Michelle in confidence. Alternatively, you will find up to date information flowcharts on the noticeboard in the corridor with local contact information.
