Welcome to our website which provides information about services and provision in our children’s centre and nursery school to help you understand how we work and what we offer.
At our school and children’s centre, children are given opportunities to gain a variety of experiences to become independent and confident learners in a safe, spacious, enabling environment supported by skilled and experienced practitioners. We work in partnership with you, the parents and carers, to ensure that your child has the best possible start to their academic journey. From their settling-in experience right through to their transition to primary school, we aim for a happy and fulfilling early years’ experience and value every achievement, great and small. You can be sure that our ‘Outstanding’ provision, as identified by Ofsted in the last 4 consecutive inspections, provides early years education suited to meet the specific needs of each child.
I hope our website is helpful and answers many of your questions, but please feel free to contact Jennifer Battles if you have any questions, would like to discuss the registration process, arrange a visit or require any paper copies.
Our children’s centre welcomes parents and carers with children from Birth to 5 years old to the stay and play sessions and other activities.
We look forward to meeting you and your child soon!
Head of School

Attached is a really helpful document for parents to read and use regarding Black Lives Matter. It gives some background about the movement, contains a guide about how to discuss these issues with your children and may be a very useful tool for families to explain how important racial equality is. We hope you find it useful.
