Nursery & Reception Staff

All of the nursery staff are qualified early years practitioners, specially trained to offer just the right blend of enthusiasm, engagement and motivation to our boys and girls. We positively encourage every member of staff to acquire further qualifications and to take advantage of our own in-house training so that we can continue to improve every aspect of our provision.

This commitment to continuous quality improvement has been recognised by the award of a special accolade from The Bristol Standard validation panel, who made particular mention of the outstanding way we involve our families in the life of the setting. One way in which we achieve this is to make it easy for parents to get in touch with staff. This can be done on an informal basis at every drop-off and pick-up, via a home-school diary system, and through the ‘Tapestry’ learning journals that we share online. Parents are also welcome to email the teachers, room leaders and the Nursery Manager, Mrs Sarah Harris, at any time of the day.

Please use the link below to download a list of all the school staff. If you would like to speak to someone over the phone, please call the school office on 01753 520095 and we will do our best to put you in contact.
