Due to the severe weather warnings by the Met Office and local schools closing, we have made the early decision to close Pre-School tomorrow – Friday 2nd March.
Please stay safe, keep warm and enjoy the snow – and we look forward to seeing you all next week ⛄❄
From all at Bishop Sutton Pre-School.
UPDATED THURSDAY 1 MARCH : URGENT!
School’s Out! Sorry for the late notice but a Red Warning has just been issue for the area so there is NO FOREST SCHOOL today as Bishop Sutton Primary School has been closed. Enjoy and stay warm and safe everyone!
Wow! What a chilly snap we are having!
Just a few notes regarding the weather forecast over the next couple of days.
At Bishop Sutton Pre-School we play outside every day. We encourage the children to explore the outside environment and this includes whatever the weather brings. Over the last few days the children have been exploring ice and frozen water, rescuing trapped toy animals from their impending doom! Watching or making the ice melt and testing the temperature of the icy water.
With snow forecast (fingers crossed!) We are certainly planning to enjoy it, so please make sure you wrap up warmly. Hats, gloves and a warm coat are essential. In the event of heavy snowfall/impassable roads resulting in Pre-School closure, we will endeavour to contact you before you set out. A general rule of thumb, if Bishop Sutton Primary School is closed, then we will be too.
At Forest Club, the entire session is held outdoors. Here are a few things to remember
- Tights/leggings/long johns/thermals or pyjama bottoms underneath trousers and 2 pairs of socks.
- Several layers on top plus a warm coat
- Hat, gloves, wellies or snow boots.
We supply our Forest Club outfits as an extra but please note, they only add a thin waterproof layer.
Thanks everyone! Let’s do this!

Come along and bring your family and littles ones to look around our setting and meet the team at our Outstanding Pre-School and Forest Club on Saturday 10 March, from 10am to 12pm.
Discover how we use play, paint and active storytelling to give your child the very best early years support and prepare them for their next step up to ‘big’ school.
And for those children entering their Pre-School year, find out all about what learning adventures our Outstanding Forest Club can offer your little explorer.
After the children have had their Christmas party we thought the parents too needed a night out to celebrate the end of a very busy Christmas term!
So do come along and join our staff and parent committee members for a well earned drink (or two!) at the Red Lion, Bishop Sutton from 8pm onwards. We look forward to welcoming new parents and catching up with some old friends!
For more information and entry details click through here. Or if you don’t want to run, then why not come along for a fun morning cheering on the Santa’s. A Children’s Mini Scramble is being held on-site at Chew Valley School at 10am, and the main race will head out at 11am, and finish back at the school site.
