Headteacher Welcome


I am very lucky to be the Headteacher of this wonderful maintained nursery school. Parents and families always comment on the friendly, happy atmosphere and the enjoyment shown by the children attending. Our nursery school has been judged to be ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, and we are very proud of the learning experiences we offer and the success of the children that attend. We are committed to providing a safe and secure environment and an exciting early year’s curriculum that is engaging and irresistible to all our young children.
