The Nursery School is funded by the Local Authority and has a fully delegated budget. We are one of 27 Birmingham Local Authority Maintained Nursery Schools which promote quality and excellence for our youngest children in Birmingham.
We provide quality nursery education for 250 children within our setting offering places to 2, 3 and 4 year olds. Children access their Early Education Entitlement of 15 hours provision per week attending mornings, afternoons or blocked days. Eligible working parents are able to access 30 hours provision per week. The Nursery School is popular and the number of children on roll continues to rise.
Our staff team includes an experienced SENCo, Early Years teachers and teaching assistants, Forest School Leader, and trained practitioners that promote Communication and Language. We also work with a range of external agencies to support children's learning and development.
The governing body plays a key role in overseeing the practice and ethos of the school. They provide challenge and support to the Head Teacher and leadership team.
Working with parents
We value parental input very highly. Each term we hold parent consultation meetings with their child's key person and share their child's learning and development. We encourage families to share children's learning experiences from home through the Tapestry documentation tool.
