St Wilfrid's CE Primary School is a one and half form entry primary school for children aged 4-11. Every September, we welcome 45 children into our reception class - although high priority is given to children with Church connections, other local children are welcome and attend the school and nursery in significant numbers. In September 2018, the Trust Admissions Governing Body have agreed to increase the number of children to 50.
St Wilfrid's CE Nursery is very fortunate to have a Nursery unit, as part of our Early Years education on site. We are proud of our school and all that we are able to offer.
Our Nursery has a qualified teacher, together with two key workers. As well as a focus on social, physical and language development, there is a clear learning focus to all that takes place and and we are able to have a structured and clear approach to the teaching of phonics. The progress children make in our nursery, both socially and academically is excellent and this ensures that the children have built an excellent foundation before starting school. We offer either full time education (30 hours) or 15 hours (part time): Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning or Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday. Top up sessions are also available.
Like the main school, the Nursery children take part in Nursery Worship and Christian celebrations throughout the year, ensuring a strong Christian ethos throughout the school.
Information about events can be found through the School’s weekly newsletter and the Nursery Weekly Letter (obtainable either from our Nursery Information Page or from the School Office entrance).
You are always welcome in the Nursery. We hope that parents will join staff and children in visits and outings. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with you.
