Our Nursery is staffed by an experienced teacher and a team of highly skilled Nursery Nurses and Teaching Assistants.
We provide 30 Nursery places per session. These are available to children from the term following their third birthday in accordance with our Admissions Policy. Children are eligible for a minimum of fifteen hours of funded provision per week, with working parents able to claim extra hours of funded provision. Further information re 30 hours can be found here
The Nursery Day
The Nursery is organized into clearly defined areas and the children are able to choose an activity and move freely from one activity to another. The outdoor area is available for use by the children for much of the day. During each session, we come together as a group for story, singing or other activity.
A healthy snack and a carton of milk is provided free of charge each day and drinking water is always available. We have areas for children who need to rest in the afternoon.
Children who are staying at Nursery for the whole day, will need to bring a packed lunch with them in a lunch box clearly labelled with their name.There is a small fee for lunch club. Please do not include nuts or nut products in your child’s lunch. Water will be provided, but if you wish to send in a drink, please ensure that it is in a carton or plastic bottle. Fizzy drinks are not permitted. If your child brings grapes to eat at Nursery, please ensure that they are cut into smallish pieces.
If you would like to visit the Nursery please contact the school office.

Each Primary School organises their own pre-school visits during the children’s last term in Nursery.
