Our Nursery is where the story begins...


We believe in learning through play and creating confident children who are ready for school.

Together the Nursery and Reception classes make up the Foundation Stage.

At Christ the King, all children in the foundation stage follow a curriculum called the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and this is broken down into 7 curriculum areas.


Our staff are constantly assessing the children in their everyday activities, play and through more focussed adult-led interactions and sessions.

We use observations of the children, photos, the work that they do, feedback from parents and comments made by the children to assess where the pupils are working.


We currently have a 26 place Nursery, with both morning and afternoon sessions.

Children may attend the Nursery from the age of 3.


Our Nursery hours are:


  • Morning session 8:45am - 11:45am
  • Afternoon session 12:30pm - 3:30pm


For the Summer Term 2024 we will be trialling 30-hour nursery places.

Please see the 30-hour nursery letter (under admissions) for further information and an application form. 



Applications for Nursery places should be made through the school using our Nursery Admission form.


Please note: a place in Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception when the child is of school age.
