Affectionately named ‘Seedlings’, our nursery welcomes children into a secure, happy and stimulating environment. Our sessions are during the school term term only  from 7.30am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday.

Children are able to start from the term after they turn 3 years old, although the local authority will provide funding earlier if parents qualify for a 'Letter of Eligibility'. For more information on early years funding click here.

 Seedlings provides:

  • an excellent early years teacher-led curriculum, nurturing children to achieve their potential
  • a fun environment for learning, where each child can grow in self-esteem and independence
  • a caring staff team who look out for each individual child’s needs, helping them become more confident
  • quality feedback to parents
  • additional hours for wrap around care

Extended Entitlement

From September 2017, 3 or 4 year olds may be entitled to 30 hours free childcare, if their parents are working. Please click here to review the eligibility criteria and some frequently asked questions. If your child is on our Seedlings waiting list and you think you may qualify, please let the school office know. 


The staff provide a wide range of activities and experiences in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, through which children can become confident in working and communicating with adults and children. We pride ourselves in being very approachable and you are always welcome to come in and have a chat if you have any concerns or you feel there is something specific that you think we need to know.

The older nursery children will be based in the main nursery building, affectionately known as The Potting Shed. This is also where the breakfast and after school clubs are based.

The older children will follow the Early Years Curriculum, with different activities allowing each child to develop key skills, while having fun and building relationships with adults and their peers. We want every child to feel valued, cared for and safe at all times.  

Our very youngest children will spend the majority of their day in The Pod Building, following the same curriculum as the older nursery children.
