Rainbows Nursery Welcome

Rainbows Nursery Welcome

A Personal Welcome from Mrs Bates (Head Teacher)

The overall reason for Greasley Beauvale Primary School wanting to accommodate our own nursery provision and lowering the age range to 3 is down to the following factors:


  • A first quality education for 3 year olds and above;
  • Quality transition into Reception and main school;
  • Opportunities for staff, parents and children;
  • All day care for children within the community (hence supporting families);
  • School readiness.

The many advantages to joining our school-based Rainbows Nursery from 3 years of age:


  • Be led and managed by a committed and driven senior management and leadership team (including Governors the SBM and EYFS lead);
  • Be led by a qualified teacher who will work with the EYFS team and be fully part of the school and the whole-staff team;
  • Ensure that children are exposed to a high-quality curriculum (including phonics) and receive first-quality teaching;
  • A setting supported by well-qualified and experienced Learning Support Assistants in the field of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS);
