Poulner Infant & Teddy Bears News

Dear Parents & Carers
We are very excited to announce that with effect from the beginning of the Autumn Term (September 2019) Teddy Bears Pre-School will be re-locating and will be based within Poulner Infant School premises.  As our numbers have reduced, we are able to offer ‘spare’ classroom space that will enable Teddy Bears to have a permanent room set up (instead of their current ‘pack away’ set up).
We have strong partnerships with all our ‘feeder’ pre-schools, but in recent years the vast majority of children starting in our Foundation Stage transfer from Teddy Bear.  Having Teddy Bears on site will enable us to work even closer together ensuring a smooth transition from pre-school to school.
Attending Teddy Bears will not automatically qualify your child for a place at Poulner Infants as the Hampshire Admission Criteria will still be applied.
Both Poulner Infant School staff and governors and Teddy Bears Committee and staff are extremely excited by this move and we look forward to forging a stronger partnership.  We also look forward to being able to enhance our provisions, providing opportunities such as extended pre-school sessions, breakfast and after school clubs.
Watch this space!
