Making a difference. All of our children, all of the time

Welcome to the website for Castle Vale Nursery School. I hope you will be able to find all the information you need whether you are looking for a school for your child, have a child who attends our school or are someone with an interest in our school. Our staff team work tirelessly for our children to help them become the best little people they can be. Our school provides individualised learning through effective adult interactions in a free flow, child initiated learning environment. Children access Forest School sessions every week and learn independence and life skills through many varied and practical activities including woodwork, risky play, taking care of our animals and cooking. We love to be outdoors and take pride in our sensory and messy play. Please feel free to browse our site and ask us any questions you have. We are very proud of what we do but are always keen to improve. If there is any way we can do even better, please let us know at Also use the email address, call 01216757578 or come in and speak to me if you have any concerns or a complaint about what we do. We will always want to hear from you and talk it through. You can also find a copy of our complaints policy in the policies section. Policies

Yesterday we took some of our children over to Topcliffe Primary School to watch their Reception class do their nativity performance. We got to see lots of our ex pupils perform and were so proud of them. It was also a lovely chance to start talking about school with our current children.
Today our children will be going home with one of these lovely bags for them to collect Autumn goodies in. The children will bring them back to Nursery on Monday and we will explore our new found treasure together.
Come along to the Step by Step stay and play run by the Developing Local Provision Project at Castle Vale Children's Centre on Friday at 1pm. There is a no booking required to attend and our friendly staff will be able to support you with any questions you may have about your child's development.
Free new and used uniform. It will be used as soon as your child has come to nursery school anyway 😊. Learning is a messy business. Come along and help yourself.
As many of you may know Isaiah, an ex pupil of ours, has been fighting a brain tumour for many years now. This Thursday we are all going to wear a rainbow to raise money for him and his family. So get all of your brightly coloured clothes ready! Donations are welcome and we will have buckets on the gate. If you would like to donate via their go fund me page here is the link
