Our bright and welcoming Nursery is situated in our Infant School. The Nursery is well resourced and has it’s  own woodland outside area. Nursery children are also able to access lots of resources within the wider school and do so on a weekly basis including using the pupil cooking kitchen, the school library and the hall where they have a PE session. Children take part in the Christmas Nativity each year and are very much part of our school family.
