Our 22-place nursery is for 3-4 year olds only. It offers core funded (as applicable) hours between 9am and 3.30pm, Monday-Friday, with the same extended day timings as the school: 7.45am until 6pm.
The nursery is operational for 48 weeks of the year.
The nursery class is situated alongside our current Reception classroom on the third floor. The space has direct access onto the roof terrace and will also share access of toilet facilities with our Reception class.
Additional security and access measures at both the main entrance to the building on Arcola Street, and the door off the stairwell into the class are in place. These measures include video access to the class and a number of new security-fobbed doors.
The nursery provision will be overseen by Ms Antionette Mattison, a highly qualified and experienced Nursery Manager, who will report into our Early Years Lead, Ms Ashley, and the Senior Leadership Team of the school.
The core purpose of our provision is to provide an exceptional start to our families’ experience of the Halley House curriculum, values and ethos. Nursery children will share utilise the school hall for PE, however we do not foresee this having any impact on current provision for Reception-Year 6. The Nursery class will absolutely be part of our whole school approach and, as such will be accessing a range of activities and trips off-site throughout the year.
