We are a Nursery with 52 part-time places in the morning and 39 part-time places in the afternoon, for children who are 3 and 4 years old. Our friendly and caring atmosphere complements a positive learning environment within the nursery.
Our staff consists of 2 teachers (Mrs Ruth Fletcher and Mrs Ann Morrell) and 2 teaching assistants and we work very closely with the Reception (Foundation 2) staff.
We operate as a combined “Foundation Stage Unit” with 52 Nursery children and 90 Reception children. All these children have access to the whole unit. However Nursery children are taught their “focus activities” by the Nursery staff and Reception children by the Reception staff. The children have the opportunities to access a range of provision covering the seven areas of learning (Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design). We have a fantastic outdoor area where the children can also access a range of activities covering the seven areas of learning.
Morning Nursery runs from 8.35am until 11.35am and afternoon Nursery sessions are from 12.35pm until 3.35pm, so each child has 3- hour daily sessions, therefore comprising 15 hours of free Nursery education each week. Children attend either every morning or every afternoon, 5 days a week.
To apply for a place at our Nursery you will need to fill in an application form for your child which can be obtained by following the link or from our school office. Please note that our Nursery is popular and over-subscribed and that we may not be able to offer you a place immediately, or offer you your first choice between morning or afternoon.
We encourage parents and carers to visit our Nursery to gain a feeling of our vibrant, caring environment. To do so please get in touch in person, by email – email@example.com or by phone – 0115 915 3261.

What we’ve been up to…
On Thursday, Mrs Freely, Mrs Need, Mrs Harne and Mrs Rick took 28 children from the Middleton School Choir to the Birmingham Resorts World Arena for Young Voices 2019. Over 6500 children joined together to create the world’s BIGGEST school choir. It was an absolutely incredible experience for adults and children alike and a privilege to have been able to be a part of something so special.
Stars including Beau Dermott ( a Britain’s Got Talent golden buzzer act), Sharlene Hector ( a singer/songwriter who has been part of Basement Jaxx) and Tony Hadley, the lead singer of Spandau Ballet also joined us. Meeting Tony Hadley was a particular highlight for the Teachers!
Mrs Freely would like to thank all of the children who took part n the concert for all their hard work over the last few months and also a huge thank you to the parents who were able to support us by coming along to the concert.
It was a night we will never forget and we cannot wait to see what next year brings!
Please check our video in our Videos page or on our YouTube Channel.
Well done to all of our cross country runners who competed in a 1.5km race at Wollaton Park this week. Despite the muddy and wet conditions, the children performed excellently! Our boys’ team came in first place and all left with a gold medal! Huge congratulations go to Oliver Jakubiak who finished first overall and to George Sinski who finished second. What a fantastic achievement!
Our annual Middleton’s Talent Show took place on the last day of the last term of 2018.
The show is open to all the children and is designed to showcase all type of talents.
It may be that the children attend dance classes out of school, learn to play an instrument in their own time, just enjoy singing in the shower or even like to tell “Knock Knock” jokes.
This special event gives these children the opportunity to bring their talents into school and present them to the rest of their fellow pupils.
The 2018 show was full of talented pupils who showcased acrobatics, magic tricks, football skills, musical prowess.
