St Aelred’s Nursery is part of our Early Years provision. Nursery and Reception Class each have their own base, but they also share our spacious EYFS setting. This ensures that there is access to a variety of indoor and outdoor activities; that Nursery children flourish as Reception pupils are positive role-models; and that there is an easy transition to starting school.

We seek to build positive relationships with parents so that we get to know your child as an individual and so that we can work in effective partnership with you, in helping your child to learn and develop. As well as informal day-to-day communication, we use Tapestry for keeping parents informed of their child’s progress. We will invite parent and carers to a ‘focus child’ parents’ meeting termly and children receive an end-of-year report before stating school.

As part of St Aelred’s school, Nursery children benefit from what school has to offer including joining in with events such as sports day, Christmas celebrations and performances; themed days and week such as Earth Day activities; use of school facilities such as our playing field.
