Our school is currently in a position to consider opening our own nursery provision to 3 and 4 year old children from September 2023.
Following the overwhelmingly positive response to our initial consultation on a nursery school at St Luke's Church of England Primary, the we have commenced our second stage consultation on lowering the school age range from 4-11 years to 3-11 years, to enable the Nursery to open in September 2023.
The Nursery will be part of a Foundation Stage provision, enabling children to benefit from our early years educational expertise and leadership, and transition between nursery and reception classes – proven to enhance their life-long learning skills and emotional wellbeing. Children will enjoy their own well-equipped nursery room and attached outdoor play area, plus access to our planned forest area, a rich and broad early years curriculum, and wider outdoor play areas.
The school run provision will be offering Free Early Education Entitlement funded places for eligible 3 and 4 year old children, including the Extended Funding Entitlement (30 hours).
As a school nursery, we would be able to provide one dedicated team offering a continuous learning journey and smooth transition throughout children’s vital first two key stages of their educational journey from ages 3 to 7. Additionally, having spoken to some of our current parents, we know that having one drop-off point, for some of our families, will be very valuable.
Consultation has now closed. Please contact the school if you would like any information regarding our Nursery.
