I am probably posting this on the wrong forum, but here goes. My little girl will start nursery school in September. I will be teaching full time as my application for 4 days has been declined. As a parent am I entitled to take her to her first day at school? Go and watch her nativity/Easter performance? (Would this be at the heads discretion?) I want to be well informed before I go and ask. I want to ask if I would be able to leave slightly early during ppa so I can possibly collect her at least 1 day a week. (I imagine I will get a big fat no - fair enough) I realise that for my new class it will be their first day with me, although they will have met me before on several ocassions for transition. So I feel guilt there, but not as much as dumping my child with a childminder, and her teacher not even knowing who I am.
