September session requests

Your requests for extra sessions and changes to sessions for September have now all been allocated. Everyone has the sessions they required for their children.


We have been asked by Writtle Parish Council to remind all parents dropping off and picking up children at both Writtle Infant and Junior schools and the Duckling Nursery about parking issues around the schools. There are particular concerns with the stretch of road between Margaretting Road and Loves Walk. Cars are parked along this road and it has been reported that vehicles are driving onto the footpath in order to get through the congestion when families are walking to school. We are requesting that parents do not park along this section of the road in order to keep the children safe. Please remain considerate to local residents when parking.

Sun cream and sun hats

Hopefully we will be feeling some lovely warm sunshine soon. Please can I remind you that all children have sun hats at Ducklings. For those children who attend a full day we will apply Boots children’s factor 50 sun cream after lunch, however if this is unsuitable for your child please send in another cream. Please can you ensure that this is named?

Duckling stars

It’s our lovely yellow star time again. Please let us know of any achievement your child has made or any moments of pride or fun they have given you however little this might be.

Duckling Summer Holiday Club

Due to popular demand the Duckling summer holiday club returns again this summer. We know some parents are already trying to organise their childcare throughout the summer break, which is why we have confirmed the dates early. They are the week beginning 12th August and the week beginning 19th August. This is for Duckling children, siblings and school children. Posters and flyers will be distributed after half term however we are taking bookings from today. Please come and see me if you require more information.
