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 Jade Bryan if you need more information, paper copies you would find useful or would like to discuss the registration process and/or arrange a visit.
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
COVID 19 UPDATE:
To all our parents, carers, friends, visitors and families.
This is to inform you all that as of from Monday 23rd March 2020 we will be closed to the majority of our nursery children, due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Over this period of closure we will have staff on site as we will have a limited number of children attending. These places are for children with key worker families or children that are vulnerable. If you are in need of a place please contact us on the details at the bottom of the page.
Parents and carers please check your emails regularly as we will be sending out information and ideas of things to do with your child while at home. Please visit this page for lots of useful ideas and websites to visit with activities and a range of support. We would really like to see what you have been doing, so don’t forget to post your photos and videos on the EExAT App. We will also keep you informed of any changes to our provision or incase of a closure.
All children’s centre sessions are also cancelled. If you need any support over this period of closure you will be able to call the school until further notice.
Please take care and follow the advice given by the government to help control the spread of this virus. It is very important that you and your children remain at home and avoid contact with others outside of your home.
