Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Welcome to Nursery

At the start of your child’s journey through education, we offer your child the opportunity to flourish and grow through child initiated play in a welcoming, friendly and interactive environment. The children have free flow access to both the indoor and outdoor environment and they also get to explore our two forest school sites weekly.

The Nursery Team are Mrs Wootton, Mrs Barnard, Mrs Williamson, Mrs Spears and Mrs Hellingsworth.

Mrs Watkins, our Foundation Stage Leader takes the children to Forest Schools on Wednesdays (alternative half terms).


At Holywell we pride ourselves on child led planning, whereby the children have an input into the topics taught throughout the year. We will begin by ensuring that the children settle as easily as possible but we will then use their interests to develop their learning during this half term.

2018 -2019 Topics

Autumn 1 Settling In

Autumn 2 Myself

Spring 1  Superheroes

At Holywell Nursery we offer beginning of the week, end of the week and also we offer 30 hours sessions. We also offer a number of full-time days and wrap-around care is available with Woody’s Out-of-School Club http://www.thewoodschildcareclubs.com/.
