Tinkers News

A big thank you to Charity of Hope for our lovely seeds and plants. 

The Big Tinkers had a busy day planting ... but there was still plenty of time to dig for worms! 

Our Tinkers staff had a training session to update our safeguarding

knowledge. The training covered all areas of safeguarding children, including any new legislation. 

We also discussed aspects of e-safety.  Here are a few links that you may find helpful. 

Don't forget to order photos from our photographer, Emma Collie at Mirror Image Photography.

If you don't know the access password, please ask one of the staff so you can order copies via her website.

Thank you so much to our friends at the Men Shed for our up cycled furniture. The children love it (and so do the grown ups!). 

The Big Tinkers have grown sunflowers from seed and Ellie delivered some to our friends from Young at Heart, Heathfield. 

Whose will grow the tallest?

A reminder that from 19th July, we are still asking parents and carers to please wear a mask when they come into the entrance hall when dropping off and collecting children and to remember only one family in at a time.

We will continue to operate the one way system for collecting and dropping off children at the main building, and to pick up and drop children at the gate for Big Tinkers, to support our social distancing rules.

We will of course continue to ensure regular hand washing and good hygiene practice as well as risk assessing for the safety of children and staff. You can read our Risk Assessment by clicking on the box below and if you have any comments or questions, please email us.

Thank you again to everyone for your support and kindness. Stay safe and be kind.

In line with the latest Child Protection and Safeguarding guidelines  published in September 2020, we have updated our policy and this can be found on our Policies page (Helpful information). All our policies are updated annually (or sooner if legislation dictates). 

Head over to our Home learning page for ideas of fun things to do. If you have any ideas you would like to share, email us and we can add them too.
