Bellefield CofE Primary & Nursery School


Welcome to all of our 'returning' children and to our new starters. We are looking forward to the new academic year and all of the fun learning it will bring! 

Our New to Nursery Parent Meeting will be held on Tuesday 19th September from 5 - 6 p.m. It is really important that if your child has just started in the Nursery that you attend.


Tropical Discovery

Kris brought a range of creatures for the children to see. They handled them carefully and were amazingly interested and engaged!

In the Nursery, children learn through purposeful play whilst supported by caring and creative adults. The resources and environment both inside and outside are carefully planned to reflect all the areas of the EYFS curriculum.  Topics and themes are planned in response to the children's interests, learning styles and stages of development. As well as following the children's interests 'in the moment', we make sure that they have access to a wide variety of enrichment activities such as visitors, trips out and about, Forest Schools and woodwork. 

We know that it is really important that we work in partnership with parents/carers so that the children can have the best possible experience in Nursery. Please talk to any member of the team if you have a question or email Miss Lillywhite 

We will keep you updated with regular newsletters but please make sure you speak to us if you have any questions.

In the Early Years at Bellefield, we nurture the whole child and want our children to develop their skills and knowledge across all of the areas of learning. Click here for a link to the Development Matters document which explains the areas in detail. 

We also work hard to ensure our children grow to be........

  • Happy and engaged.
  • Confident and independent.
  • Curious.
  • Risk-takers and resilient.
  • Empathetic and kind.
  • Confident to communicate. 

Have a look at the photos and spot these characteristics in our amazing children!
