Nursery Provision


The early years team (nursery and reception classes) have been awarded the Lancashire Step into Quality mark.

We are able to offer all three and four year olds fifteen free hours of nursery education per week in a class taught by a fully qualified teacher.  Wherever possible we aim to offer these hours in a pattern to suit you.  Parents can pay for extra sessions if they need them when we have spaces available.  Children may access this provision from the start of the term after they have had their third birthday although some children may be able to start at the beginning of the term in which they become three if certain eligibility criteria are met.  They are known as 'rising threes'.  

Parents of three and four year olds who work may be entitled to thirty hours of free childcare per week, providing certain eligibility criteria are met.  This could be a combination of nursery education, breakfast club and after school club.  Please speak to Mrs Heaton in nursery for more information.

Please contact the school office on 880810 for further details.
