ST WERBURGHS PARK NURSERY SCHOOL
VISION

St. Werburgh’s specialises in providing education for children aged 2-5 years. Inspired by the Nursery Pioneer Margaret McMillan, Bristol City Council built St. Werburgh’s in 1931 as an open-air Nursery School.

In September 2003 the nursery amalgamated with a Family Unit with a new extension finally completed in May 2005. In May 2007 the school was officially designated a Children’s Centre with a second extension and achieved full core offer in January 2010.

The school was designated an Early Years Centre of Excellence in 2012 and went on to be part of a National Teaching School in partnership with two other nursery schools in 2013. It continues to offer training and support to other professionals and students.

The school has three nursery classes for three and four year olds: Green, Yellow and Blue rooms and two classes for two year olds: Purple and Red rooms.

Additional hours can be bought for children.

There are a number of Daycare places available for two year olds.

Children with SEND

Special Educational Needs

We offer an inclusive approach that enables all children to participate in activities at their own individual level and to experience success. If there are concerns that a child may have a behavioural, emotional, physical or learning difficulty we will always discuss this with you. If necessary we will together refer to specialist agencies that are available to us (e.g. Speech Therapist, Educational Psychologist; Health Visitor or Paediatrician).

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Rachel Barnwell.

Tapestry

Sharing your child’s learning 

How we share important examples of what your child is learning in nursery, and how you can share information about your child’s learning at home
  • We use a secure online platform called Tapestry

  • Please download the app for iOS or Android.

We use Tapestry for 4 reasons:

  • To share important examples of children’s learning and play with parents

  • To learn from parents about children’s key play, learning and life events at home

  • To encourage children to talk about their learning with parents and staff

  • To help parents with ideas for supporting their children’s learning at home
