Nursery has children aged 3-4. Nursery classes are only 3 hours a day, so we have a morning and afternoon nursery class, with up to 39 children in each class.

The morning class is called Moon and the afternoon class is called Stars.

The teachers in Nursery are Mrs Tariq and Mrs Rathor-Khan. They are supported by the Early years practitioners, Miss Alam and Mrs Iqbal, and the Teaching and learning partner, Miss Mahmood.
