McMillan Nursery School


  • At McMillan Nursery School we recognise that attending nursery regularly has a positive impact on learning and progress and therefore the best life chances for children. We will encourage good attendance for all children by offering an environment in which pupils feel valued and part of the nursery community. 
  • For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their nursery education, it is vital that they attend regularly. When children are absent from Nursery School they miss out on  a lot of learning and can often feel unsettled when they return.
  • Children should be at school, on time, every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.
  • Always let us know as soon as possible if your child cannot attend nursery.
  • Attendance is monitored each half term and parents will receive information about their child's attendance. If a child's attendance falls below 85%, we will meet to discuss how we can increase your child's attendance.
  • Parents are informed on the weekly newsletter, of our attendance competition. The Key Person group with the highest attendance receive a certificate and get to keep our nursery attendance monkey 'McMillan Monkey' for the week.
  • Children are also awarded certificates for good attendance every term.
  • Please help us to ensure that your child reaches their full potential by ensuring they attend nursery regularly.
  • If you child is absent, please try and continue their learning at home by visiting our learning zone on the website and suggestions on the weekly newsletter.
