This September we opened our brand new and exciting nursery! We have space for 26 children in the morning and 26 in the afternoon. We are offering 15 hours or 30 free hours to those who are eligible, (see below).  We are opening a second classroom from January 2023 - please get in touch with the office if you are interested in applying for a space.


Lordship Lane is an inclusive and welcoming school and our dedicated team of staff are committed to ensuring that every child in our care will be supported to flourish as they take their first steps into their early learning journey.

We instill a love of learning through exciting and stimulating experiences that run through our indoor and outdoor provision and our new, purpose built nursery and newly developed grounds will offer a safe and engaging environment where all children are happy, confident and independent.

Transition into Nursery

Starting Nursery is a new and exciting experience, however, both parents and children can sometimes feel apprehensive about the changes ahead. At Lordship Lane primary, we aim to make the transition as smooth and as positive for all involved.


What does my child need to wear?

At Lordship Lane Nursery, the children need to wear school uniform. Children will need a spare bag of clothes which can be kept on their peg in case a change of clothing is required. Children are encouraged to manage their own shoes and coats, so styles which are easy for children are requested. Please ask the school office for a uniform list.


Healthy Eating

Children are able to have milk, water or fruit during the morning and afternoon sessions.



At Lordship Lane Nursery we aim to make the nursery a safe and secure place for the children, parents/carers, staff and any visitors who may enter the setting. We aim to make all the children, parents/carers and staff aware of health and safety issues to minimise the hazards and risks to enable them to thrive in a safe and healthy environment.  

Gates are always closed and locked before children enter the garden for outdoor play.

Please see the safeguarding section of the website for all of our safeguarding information.


Parents as Partners

The team respects that you, the parent, have the greatest knowledge of your child. The staff will endeavour to carry out your wishes at all times although you are asked to respect the policies and procedures we are regulated by. We promote a two‐way partnership between parents and carer that establishes good home/nursery links.
