Headteacher Welcome


Welcome to Bacup Nursery School and I hope Bacup Nursery School fulfils all your expectations and more so that your child receives not just a good but an excellent education.

As Headteacher here for seven years, I aim to maintain our outstanding status and build strong foundations with the ambition that all our children will be happy, confident, enquiring, polite, caring, motivated and fully prepared emotionally and academically for the transition to Primary School. Simply put, I want our Nursery School to be the best that it can be!

I believe the success of a school is that there is strong leadership with a clear vision and the drive and character to achieve this, with the full commitment and support of all the staff, parents and governors who are passionate about doing only what is best for the children. I want to encourage staff and children to try new ideas and build a nursery school with an amazing reputation in Bacup and beyond!

Bacup Nursery School has four qualified teachers with a wide range of teaching experience in early years and primary education, along with highly qualified and experienced teaching assistants. As teachers, we need to know our children really well so that we can discover, nurture and challenge each and every one of them and where personal achievements are celebrated no matter how large or small.The classroom environments at Bacup Nursery School have been well planned and developed to allow staff to work closely with the children and where children are closely monitored. High expectations encourage children to be kind and compassionate towards others, to have good manners and to be given the opportunities to practise skills and deepen their knowledge and understanding.

The opportunities that we are given as young children clearly impact on us in later life. It is extremely important that we expose all our children to a high standard of education with exciting and equal opportunities. Here, at Bacup Nursery School, children have additional and regular opportunities for active phonics, yoga, dance, multi-cultural cooking, links with the local Church along with a range of extra-curricular activities provided by our excellent nursery school staff.

Bacup Nursery School lowered the age phase of the school in January 2016 so that 2 year old children can start in the nursery school. If you would like to know more about any aspect of the school, please contact me. I would be delighted to show you around our fantastic Nursery School with its excellent facilities, both indoors and outdoors.
