From September 2017 we will be offering a limited number of funded 30 hours places to eligible families. The eligibility criteria are as follows;

Both parents or sole parent in one parent family must be working

Each parent working at least the equivalent of 16 hours at national living wage (16 x £7.20 = £115.20 per week)

Neither parent must earn more than £100,000 per annum

Working includes self-employment

Includes parents on parental, maternity, adoption, or SSP, or who has substantial caring responsibilities, or where one parent is disabled and in receipt of certain benefits.

 

We would encourage all families who may wish to claim 30 hours free childcare (free full time provision) to visit the following website www.childcarechoices.gov.uk and complete the questions within the 30 hours funding section. If you need help with this please let us know and we will be happy to help you to complete it.

Once you have done this, you will be given an 11 digit code. We will validate your 11 digit code with Cheshire East Council. Please be assured that if you are not eligible for 30 hours funding you will still be entitled to the usual 15 hours.

On wednesday 24th May we ran Internet/Online Safety sessions in partnership with NSPCC. Thanks to those parents who attended, we hope that you got some useful information. For those of you that were unable to attend. leaflets are available in the reception area.

 

Welcome

Welcome to Westminster Nursery School. We are the only maintained Nursery School in Cheshire East and are well equipped to provide a high quality of education for children aged 2-4 years old. We are very proud of our school, our children and their achievements.

We have a wonderful learning environment both inside and out which is well organised, resourced and stimulating to enable children to learn through play with the guidance and care of our staff. Our nursery teachers plan and deliver activities for the children following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, whilst incorporating the children’s interests to ensure a child centred focus, meeting the needs of each individual child and building a strong foundation for life-long learning.

We believe that all children have a right to enjoy school and succeed regardless of gender, race or ability.

We support the children to feel happy, safe and confident in order for them to reach their full potential. We hold very high expectations of all our children and strive to achieve excellence for all, where individual needs are acknowledged and met.

We currently offer 15 hours per week of ‘Free entitlement’ with some opportunity to buy additional sessions. From September 2017 we will also be offering the 'free 30 hours entitlement' to the children who are eligible. We welcome families to visit and see our school; you will find us open, friendly and welcoming. If you are a parent or carer and would like to visit, please contact us to look around the school and meet our wonderful children and staff – you will be very welcome.

Thank you

Elizabeth Hulse

Headteacher
