Welcome to St Mary's Nursery

I am very proud to welcome you to St Mary’s Catholic Primary and Nursery School; a community of love where every child is valued and celebrated as a unique member of God's family.  As a Catholic nursery we offer our children the opportunity to grow as young people and encourage them to develop a closer relationship with God surrounded in mutual love and respect. Through offering children this experience of life founded on Gospel values, we enable children to reach their full potential, spiritually, intellectually, morally, emotionally, physically and socially.  St Mary’s Nursery offers a calming but stimulating environment; a place where children can explore, learn, develop and grow accessing the wider school site and the benefits this can bring.

The children in St Mary’s Nursery will be offered a range of exciting learning opportunities.

  • To nurture the positive relationships between home and school; value parents as ‘first educators’ and continue our ‘open door’ policy that both supports and gives parent opportunities to be involved pro-actively in their child’s learning
  • To develop children in their prime areas - ensuring they are well supported through effective use of our inclusion team.
  • To deliver an exciting and engaging curriculum that children are keen and eager to learn in and facilitates best outcomes for their future
  • To create an inspiring learning environment that is inclusive and meets the needs of all children allowing them to feel safe and instilling a ‘can do’ attitude for learning that can follow through from Nursery to Reception and for the rest of their learning life
  • To provide children with the very best learning experiences and support to enable them to progress, ensuring that each stage of their development is observed and monitored by highly skilled and appropriately trained staff
  • To ensure early education will have provided the children with high quality interactions with dedicated and qualified staff that will impact on all children’s development and learning
  • Recognition as an Outstanding School from EYFS to the end of KS2

We believe that working in partnership with parents, carers, governors, and our parish community is critical to ensuring our success. A family atmosphere is fostered within which children feel confident to express their individuality, their talents and know that success in any aspect of their lives will be rewarded and celebrated.  Parents have a very important role to play in the education of their children and we actively encourage close co-operation between home and school. We value and build on the experience and knowledge which children bring from their home lives and we very much look forward to working alongside you.
