Mark Burnett visits our Nursery

It was fantastic for Mark Burnett, Chief Operating Officer of the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education Multi-Academy Trust (SDBEMAT) to visit the Nursery and speak to our Nursery Teacher, Ms Madden.

When Mark visited St Luke’s on Monday 20th October for the SDBEMAT’s first Inset Day, Mark took the opportunity to visit our new nursery.

Our Nursery is part of a Foundation Stage provision, enabling children to benefit from our early years educational expertise and leadership, and transition between nursery and reception classes – proven to enhance their life-long learning skills and emotional wellbeing. Children have been enjoying learning in their own well-equipped nursery room and attached outdoor play area, plus access to our forest area, a rich and broad early years curriculum, and wider outdoor play areas.

As a school nursery, we are now able to provide one dedicated team offering a continuous learning journey and smooth transition throughout children’s vital first two key stages of their educational journey from ages 3 to 7.  Our school run provision offers Free Early Education Entitlement funded places for eligible 3 and 4 year old children (15 hours) including the Extended Funding Entitlement (30 hours).  

During his visit Mark looked around the nursery indoor and outdoor learning areas and spoke to Ms Madden about how well the Nursery has grown since it opened in September, with full and part-time learners.  Mark was also shown the planned greenery areas between the Nursery and Reception outdoor learning areas.  Next week, 2 planters will be built and placed against the side walls with seating areas which pupils in Nursery and Reception will take turns to plant and maintain the plants.  

Next time Mark visits the Nursery it will be for our official Opening of the Nursery.  More details to follow.
