Morning Nursery

Keeping our children safe on line is very important to us. Please read this guide to keeping your child IT safe.

Welcome to Our Nursery Page!


Our Teacher is Mrs C Barton.

Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs J Hall and Miss E Furniss



We introduce children to Nursery three times a year - September, January and April with children starting Nursery the term following their third birthday.


Morning session 9:00am – 12:00am.


Nursery routine and Curriculum
In the Nursery we offer lots of opportunities to learn through play, including craft, games, messy play, building and small world. The children are also involved in simple Literacy and Numeracy activities which are planned to meet the individual needs of the children.

We provide a stimulating, nurturing environment that allows children to learn valuable social skills such as co-operation and independence. We also place a high emphasis on outside play with a recently developed playground area which the children love! We value the importance of healthy living with a daily healthy snack.


Copies of planning and Topics are displayed in the Nursery and on our class page, so that you can see what your child is doing each half term.

Please view the plans below to see what we are learning in Nursery/ topics covered.
