St John XXIII Catholic Primary School Inspiring Faith in our Future








Starting school is an exciting time for us all and the beginning of a wonderful journey.  Guiding the children through their Nursery journey is Mrs Nolan (class teacher) Mrs Lucas (Early Years Educator) and Mrs Rix (Teaching Assistant.).


In the Nursery we are committed to providing the children with a safe a secure environment in which they are able to develop as confident individuals with a passion to learn. We aim to provide a wide range of experiences and activities to spark their enthusiasm and provide them with opportunities to develop a range of skills that will form the foundations of all future learning. In following the Early Years Foundation Stage we primarily focus on developing the children’s speaking, listening and attention skills, their personal, social emotional development as well as their physical development.


As experienced practitioners we understand that every child is individual in their interests and abilities and are at different stages in their development. We develop strong relationships with the children and support them throughout their journey with us, from settling in, to meeting individual targets, setting personal challenges and being able to celebrate their achievements.

In Nursery we believe that children learn best through play and exploration. We support the children’s learning by developing our topics and activities around their interests. Throughout the day the children are given many exciting opportunities to explore a wide range of activities both independently and with adult support.  The children have independent access to a range of resources both inside and outside throughout the day in order to support all areas of their development. We have our own outdoor space with access to climbing equipment which the children love to explore.


We are highly committed to providing the children with the best possible care and education and value the importance of parental support. Our doors are always open and we appreciate all information that will help us to support your child. We are so proud of what the children achieve at school and the new things they are learning each week, we send home activities weekly based on what we have been doing in class so that parents are able to share these proud moments too.


We love to highlight exceptional achievements and do this through our weekly Star of the Week presentations.


We are looking forward to the exciting months ahead of us.
