Page 1 of 4

Closes 18 Jun 2023


Alexandra Park Primary School is a successful, popular and Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ two-form maintained primary school in Edgeley, Stockport. The Headteacher and Governors wish to enhance the excellent education the children receive by incorporating a school nursery into the early years provision within the school. 

We believe that by providing a school nursery to the local community we can extend our provision and have a positive impact on the pre-school education of local children. We intend to ensure that our school nursery provides the highest standards of care and education. We will utilise the extensive experience of our early years team and our high-quality environment both inside and outside, to provide an outstanding education to 3 and 4 year olds within our school. 

There are many benefits to providing this provision within our school for 3 and 4 year olds. The nursery will be staffed with excellent practitioners, they will have access to our newly developed outdoor provision and access to our very successful school. Benefits include a highly skilled and experienced SENDCo who has strong relationships and networks to support all children. We are also nationally recognised for our professional development and training for staff through our EEF (Education Endowment Foundation) Research School and leaders of maths education through the NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in Mathematics).

Nursery children attending Alexandra Park Primary will be part of the whole school, benefitting from all aspects of the wider school. We intend for our school nursery to provide a caring, safe and exciting place for children to learn and play. We will do this through our school values of Care, Aspire and Achieve and an excellent curriculum delivered by our exceptional staff.
