Welcome to Nursery


With effect from September 2024 we are pleased to be offering full day provision in our purpose built nursery class. 

The sessions will be led by qualified Early Years practitioners. Mrs Beaumont, our Early Years Lead, will have oversight of the nursery provision alongside her role as a reception teacher. 

Our nursery is for 3 and 4 year olds. We will be running a morning session (8:50 am-11:50 am) and afternoon session (12:20-3:20 pm) Monday to Friday in term time for 3 hours per session. We offer flexibility and the opportunity to buy into lunchtime care so that you can access a morning and an afternoon session in the same day. 

The funded entitlements will be delivered consistently so that all children accessing any of them will receive the same quality and access to provision, regardless of whether families opt to pay for optional hours, services, meals or consumables.

We offer 24 places in our morning session and 24 places in our afternoon session. 

From the term following a child’s 3rd birthday, all 3 and 4 year old children are entitled to 15 hours a week of funded early years provision for 38 weeks a year or 30 hours funded early years provision for those families who meet the government criteria.

I feel valued as a member of staff. I like the fact the school has a clear vision, a vision that I feel a part of.

Every single person who works at the school contributes to who I am. It truly is a special place where we are all one big family.
