Believe and Achieve



Welcome to Nursery!


In Nursery, we love to learn through exploring our environment and sharing what we know. We have lots of exciting learning spaces which are developed from our children’s interests and needs. If you visited our Nursery you would see children who are purposeful, calm, confident and independent. You would see adults moving to where the children are engaged and interacting with them as they play.


Your school journey starts here, working together as partners. We will guide you through an amazing year, preparing you to make the enormous step into full time education. Your Nursery year will include an amazing curriculum bursting with rich learning opportunities, educational visits, winter productions and ‘Learn Together’ sessions, where you can come into school with your child to share their learning experiences.
