Welcome to our Nursery!


We have a highly successful Nursery here at Greenacres Primary Academy.

Our Nursery Ethos and Values

 We believe in an inclusive education where all our Nursery children are nurtured, valued and encouraged to love learning.  

  • We believe all children should feel safe and secure to grow into confident, independent learners who are not afraid to make a mistake or take a risk.
  • We know that children learn best when they are excited by and engaged in their learning.  We teach our children the skills they need through an inspiring, creative curriculum that dares to be different.

We can do this because

  • We provide a committed staff team who offer high quality teaching and inspiring learning environments drawing on a wealth of knowledge, strengths and skills.
  • We value achievement and strive to ensure each nursery-aged child is appropriately challenged and reaches their full potential.
  • We empower our little ones to become responsible citizens in our diverse community.
  • We know that working together as a team – staff, parents, governors, the local and wider community, enables us to meet the needs of all of our children.

Open Day

We are holding an Open Day in January 2020. If you would like to visit our school and meet our Nursery teacher please pop along at a time suitable for you. You are more than welcome to bring your child with you. We will advertise this closer to the time.


 How do I apply for a place?


You can apply for a place by coming to the school office and filling out a form. We also need to see the child's birth certificate (we'll take a copy and then hand it back). Children can start the term after they turn three (as long as they are not in nappies). Even if a child isn't of Nursery age, we will still take all of their information, put them on a waiting list and contact you nearer the time. We look forward to hearing from you!
