Your child will have a smooth transition into St Patrick's school community to integrate them into school life. We include Nursery joint activities such as library days, assemblies, school productions and school events. We also work consistently and closely with Reception to build confidence and to ensure a smooth transition when they begin school. We regularly visit St Patrick’s Church which is next door to the school. The Nursery also follows Diocesan R.E strategy, learning and growing as the people of God, which runs throughout the school Our first RE topic is 'Creation' exploring how God created us, how we have changed and the world about us.
