Welcome to Nursery


We currently have a few spaces available in morning and afternoon Nursery. If you have a child who is 3 before the 1/9/17 and would like a Nursery place please call the school office, as soon as possible, on 01527 527619. We will then allocate your child a place and discuss starting arrangements with you.

What's going on in Nursery?


Each term we ensure that we cover each area of the EYFS curriculum. We also use Mantle of the Expert to bring our curriculum to life! If you would like some more information about our plans for this term and how our Nursery and Foundation stage unit runs then please look at the planning and information below.



We are very fortunate to have a swimming pool on the school site. In the Spring term we begin to take our Nursery children to the pool. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children to begin to build their confidence in and around water. The children are supervised and supported by at least 2 adults in the pool and by Mrs Williams or Mrs Paxton on the side. The children are taken in groups of no more than 13 and are provided with armbands and buoyancy aids to support their level of water confidence.
