We make early contact with schools and obtain information about their transition dates and visits possible, we make a school photo book to share with the child and they can take this home to share with family and friends, we accompany children in school visits for support and to comfort them, we have a parent questionnaire asking parents how they are feeling about the transition and if we can help at all, we have made appointments to go and see the previous year group that started school so we can get their views on school and how they remember feeling, school staff are invited to come along and attend nursery to meet the new children, we encourage all local schools that they are welcome to share this too. We also share story books about starting school and a lot of emotion work to help prepare children for how they may feel.

- Our complaints policy
Complaints and compliments Our nursery believes that parents are entitled to expect courtesy and prompt, careful attention to their individual needs and wishes. We hope that at all times you will be happy with the service provided and that you might like to voice your appreciation to the staff concerned. Complaints will be dealt with professionally and promptly to ensure that any issues arising from these complaints are handled effectively and to ensure the welfare of all children. In case of a complaint relating to child protection, please refer to the Safeguarding policy. We welcome any suggestions from parents on how we can improve our services, and will give prompt and serious attention to any concerns that you may have by following our complaints procedure as outlined below: Complaints procedure Stage 1 If any parent should have cause for complaint or any queries regarding the care or early learning provided by the nursery they should in the first instance take it up with the child's key person or the manager. Stage 2 If the issue remains unresolved or parents feel they have received an unsatisfactory outcome, then these concerns must be presented in writing to the nursery manager. The manager will then investigate the complaint and report back to the parent within five working days. This will be fully documented in the complaints log book and will detail the nature of the complaint and any actions arising from it. (Most complaints are usually resolved informally at stage 1 or 2.) Stage 3 If the matter is still not resolved, a formal meeting will be held between the manager, parent and the chairperson to ensure that it is dealt with comprehensively. A record of the meeting will be made along with documented actions. All parties present at the meeting will review the accuracy of the record, sign to agree and receive a copy, which will signify the conclusion of the procedure. Stage 4 If the matter cannot be resolved to their satisfaction, then parents have the right to raise the matter with Ofsted. Parents are made aware that they can contact the above in all stages of complaints and are given information on how to contact them. A record of complaints will be kept in the nursery. The record will include the name of the complainant, the nature of the complaint, date and time complaint received, action(s) taken, result of any investigations and any information given to the complainant including a dated response. Parents will be able to access this record if they wish to, however all personal details relating to any complaint will be stored confidentially and will be only accessible by the parties involved. Ofsted will have access to this record at any time during visits to ensure actions have been met appropriately. Contact details for the regulator: Ofsted 0300 123 1231/0300 123 4666 Parents will also be informed if the nursery becomes aware that they are going to be inspected and after inspection will provide a copy of the report to parents and/or carers of children attending on a regular basis.
