Nursery and Willow Class

Willow Class is comprised of our Nursery and Reception Children. It is taught by Mrs Biddulph and supported by Mrs Barber. 

Our stimulating, caring environment reflects the topic that the Nursery is focusing on. Sometimes our room is an underwater aquarium, sometimes a winter wonderland! We also have a developing outdoor area where learning can go beyond the classroom. We have weekly sessions in our Forest with the Reception children, which is an exciting and rich context for the children's learning. Structured and free play opportunities enable our staff to develop language, creative, social and physical skills.

Our aim is to develop a confident child, with an inquisitive mind and a lifelong passion for learning. It is essential that we work closely with parents and share knowledge to ensure we do the very best for each child. Parents are invited to come into the class before school to talk with staff and choose books to share with their children at home. We plan every child’s development based on observation, ongoing assessments and parental feedback.

Our Nursery is open plan and feeds directly into Chestnut Class so that the children have a seamless transition. They work alongside the Reception children, building positive relationships with their future peers and teaching staff.

From September 2017 the Nursery provision is as follows:

Monday and Tuesday           9am - 3.15pm.

Friday morning                      9am - 11.45am. This is a Forest School session                         

Children are able to use the 15 funded hours. Please contact the school to arrange the hours.

Lunch Club runs  11.45am - 12.45pm. There is a charge for this.

Before your child starts school you will be invited to join us for coffee and an informal chat about how our Nursery works.

There are currently spaces available.
