About the Nursery
The Nursery, part of our Foundation Stage Unit, is run by our Nursery Lead and support staff, who work skilfully alongside the children, developing their confidence, independence and social skills.
We work closely with parents and families, creating strong partnerships that ensure children are happy, settle quickly, make excellent progress and develop a love of learning.
The school operates flexible hours to meet individual needs from 8am-4:30pm, Monday to Friday, during term times. This is made possible with our daily Breakfast Club and After School Club.
Please have a look at our Nursery Handbook for more information.
Nursery session times
Morning session: 8:55am -12:00pm

We also offer Breakfast Club 8:00 – 8:55am and After School Club 3:05 – 4:30pm to meet individual needs.
Your child is entitled to 15 hours funded childcare (5 sessions) through Early Years Entitlement Funding, starting the term after your child’s 3rd birthday. If you require any additional paid for sessions for your child, a session is charged at £15.50 per session, £31 for the full day.

Wraparound Nursery Care
Breakfast Club is £3.50 per session and must be booked and paid for at least 2 days in advance of when the session is needed, on ParentPay. The club will be staffed appropriately and food purchased so we will be unable to offer a refund if your child does not attend the booked sessions.
After School Club costs £7 per session and will need to be booked and paid for at least 3 days in advance on ParentPay. If you wish to book an ad-hoc or short-notice session, please contact the school office. We will not be able to offer a refund if your child does not attend the booked sessions unless this is due to illness.
Book directly through your ParentPay account
If you also have children in Reception to Year 6, you can book their wraparound care here.
