Welcome to our Nursery
Starting in our Nursery is the beginning of an exciting journey through Salfords Primary School! Our Nursery opened in January 2020, following increasing demand from existing parents and our local community and offers funded places to children from the age of 2 years old.
From the moment your child joins us our Nursery team invest all their time and energy in helping them settle in well, develop their interests, make friends, learn lots of new and exciting things and come out each day with a smile!
The foundations we build in Nursery are crucial to each child developing a love of learning and being ready to start in Reception.
We provide a safe and secure setting in which children have access to a vibrant and stimulating indoor and outdoor area. We encourage children to develop their skills and independence through play-based learning.
Our Nursery is a key part of our school and is overseen by our Early Years Lead, Miss Halpin, who is also a teacher in one of our Reception classes. Miss Cheesewright is our Nursery Leader and looks after the Nursery team. Full details of the staff team are here.
Our Nursery is open term time, and the Nursery start and finish times support the school day as many of our parents have siblings in both nursery and the main school.
Please see our Fees, Funding and Sessions page for full details on funding available.
We encourage all new parents to come and visit our lovely Nursery and meet our staff team. See Visiting Our Nursery and Admissions page for more information.
We are delighted to let you know that our Early Years (Nursery and Reception classes) were graded as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in February 2022 who said:
''In the early years children have frequent opportunities to hear high-quality stories, poems and rhymes being read with enthusiasm and expression."
"Leaders have introduced a well sequenced curriculum in mathematics that begins in Nursery."
"The curriculum for early years has been redesigned to overcome any barriers to achievement."
We look forward to meeting you soon!
