Welcome to the Nursery. We feel privileged to be sharing your child’s first experiences of school life. This is a time for new beginnings, making friends and learning lots of new and exciting things each and every day. Our days will be filled with lots of wonderful experiences and opportunities for learning and growing. To keep you fully informed of your child’s experiences in school, you will receive a termly curriculum leaflet and a weekly ‘Dear Parent’ letter is posted onto the News/Events page on this website.
