About our Nursery

In Nursery we provide an active, happy and secure learning environment where all children are encouraged to try their best and reach their full potential.

As part of the early year’s curriculum it is crucial that we provide the children with a learning environment that enables them to explore the world around them and build a wild range of experiences. We have an indoor and outdoor learning environment which we access every day.

We strive to provide the children with a broad, balanced and creative curriculum, catering to the individual needs of all children.

The Early Years curriculum encompasses many areas of learning including:

  • Personal Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Managing Feelings and Behaviour
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Maths
  • Understanding the World
  • Creative Arts and Design

In Nursery our main focus is developing the whole child, we concentrate on building good behaviour for learning, teaching children how to follow rules and routines, be good at making friends and taking turns.

In Nursery we want to build communication and language skills, children need to be confident talkers to achieve their full potential as they move to Reception.

Throughout the year we look at many stories such as The Hungry Caterpillar and The Bear Hunt. Encouraging a love of reading with your child at this stage sets them up for good habits in later life. We ask all parents to share a story with their child at least 3 times a week.

A Welcome from our Headteacher

A very warm welcome to all the new Nursery children starting in September 2021. We are so pleased you have picked Bordesley Green Primary School to start your journey into education.

At our school, we pride ourselves on the support and education we offer to our youngest pupils and families. We have created this page for you so you can watch videos of your new teachers, take virtual tours of the school and keep up to date with any changes and future dates.

We will also add ways you can support your child in the weeks leading up to them starting school so they can have the best possible start in becoming our learning stars of the future, as at Bordesley Green Primary school we believe ‘Being Great Produces Stars’
