Nursery

Welcome to St Mary’s school! We are the foundation for everything that is to come in our wonderful school, and what a place to start!
All of our very hard work is play based and designed to help develop the skills required to thrive, succeed and enjoy our time in nursery, ensuring we are ready to move on to the rest of the school.
We access the outdoor area and whole school grounds on a daily basis to provide a broad and balanced experience.
