Meet the Nursery team   




As a nursery team we understand the importance of this early educational experience and how this can shape the attitudes of our young learners in later life. We work very closely with families to offer support and comfort to ensure the transition from home to school runs as smoothly as possible. Our main priority as practitioners is to ensure every child in our care is safe, happy and equipped to learn.

During your child’s time in Nursery they will be learning many of life’s vital skills, such as speaking and listening and good turn taking. Most importantly they will be having lots of fun along the way building confidence and forming positive relationships with both peers and staff.

What your child will need:

  • Appropriate clothing for outdoors e.g. coats in the winter and sun hats in the summer.
  • A clear labelled water bottle. As we are a healthy school we only accept water.
  • A spare change of clothing to be kept in their bag.
  • All items of clothing clearly labelled with your child’s name
  • A weekly donation of fruit to share at snack time
  • A weekly contribution of £1 into our Nursery piggy bank. Please note this is not compulsory, however all funds raised are spent directly on Nursery children.


Autumn Term

The start of our Nursery Journey!

Our topic for Autumn 1 is “Knowing Me, Knowing You”.

During this time we will be learning all about ourselves and our friends in Nursery and we are so excited to discover new things about one another. 

On our project launch day, we learnt about our teachers’ families and we also had the opportunity to share things that are very special to us. We filled our brown bags with things that were important to us and enjoyed talking about them in small groups.

The Schoop Communication System is now fully embedded. At this point in time we are no longer sending communication to you via our current method of pupil post / text messages, but instead all communication is via Schoop.

Schoop is an app that allows us to communicate with parents via a mobile device such as a mobile phone or tablet. The app allows us to send information directly to your mobile device. Examples include:

> Information Letters
> Newsletters
> Calendar of Events
> Reminders of Special Events

To install the app please go to the ‘Parents’ section of the website and click on the ‘Schoop’ link. The instructions to download the app are available here.
