Does anyone know what the safe ratios are for a nursery class in a primary school. The EYFS states the ratios are 1:13 and because of this we have now had a member of staff removed from our 40 place nursery which had a 1:10 ratio. Our limit is now capped at 39, so 3 satff with 39 children. However we cannot safely access out outdoor area, have staff doing activities or take breaks very easily with this new limit. Does anyone have any ideas/comments about what we can do. Is this safe? Our nursery children won't really be able to access a curriculum, it will be more like crowd control by the adults. HELP!
