Thrupp School Nursery is a thriving pre-school unit attached to the school. The Nursery successfully achieved the Bristol Standard Quality Assurance for 6 years and their excellent practice has been used as an exemplar for other settings.
The Nursery was started in January 1997 and has consistently proved to be a great success. It is open Monday to Wednesday from 9.00am - 3.00pm. On Thursday and Friday it is open in the morning from 9.00am to 12.00pm.
Most children are eligible for the nursery grant, which entitles each child to 5 sessions per week free of charge. For children under the age of three, fees are charged at £10 per session. We employ three members of staff and have about 25 children on roll with a maximum of 16 children per session.
The Nursery is well resourced and children have the advantage of being able to use all school facilities. As the group is closely integrated into school life, the children settle quickly and easily into school when they start in the Reception class and the academic and social benefits become evident.
