Welcome to Bacup Nursery School.
We are a busy but friendly Lancashire maintained school for children aged 2, 3 and 4 years old, with lots going on! This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.
As Headteacher here for twelve years, I simply want our Nursery School to be the best it can be for all the children. I believe the success of a school is strong leadership and teamwork of all the staff who are passionate about doing only what is best for the children. That is exactly what you will find here in our school. I also work as an Associate Headteacher across the local authority.
We are a maintained school with qualified teachers with a range of teaching experience across primary and early years education, along with highly qualified and experienced teaching assistants. We provide a high quality curriculum for all children to ensure they are well prepared for their education in primary school and beyond. A combination of the structured educational learning environment, high expectations of our whole school community of staff, parents, children and Governing Board along with excellence in teaching and learning ensures children can make rapid progress in their learning and development. When it comes to brain development, the first five years of a child's life are the most important therefore, what we do in those first five years are a key factor in the academic success of children later in life.
We are very proud of our nursery school and its fantastic facilities; visitors always comment on these, and I would be delighted to show you around Bacup Nursery School to see these first hand and meet our staff team.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Our Virtual Tour is under our 'About Us' section of the website where you can find out more. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
