Our Nursery

Key information 

We have spaces for both 30 & 15hr morning, afternoon or all day places. Please contact the school office on 01235 527600 or email to request an application form or arrange a visit to our Nursery.

Thameside Nursery is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage within the primary school. Children can join our Nursery the term after their third birthday.  We have three in-take points during the year: September, January and April.

 We offer both funded 15 hours and 30 hours provision.  For more information on Government help with childcare costs and how to apply for 30 hours fund please click on the link. 

To apply for a place please contact the school office to request an application form; these should be returned along with the child’s birth certificate and proof of address.

The current Nursery Staff is made up of our Nursery Manager (Mrs Hendry), Nursery Nurse (Miss Higgins - Boyce) & our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Webb and Mrs Eddy. All the Early Years staff in Nursery and Reception work closely together. Events and visits are usually planned jointly which means children in the Nursery become familiar with the adults they will work with if they go onto the Reception class. The Nursery children also join the rest of the school for some events e.g. World Book Day, Sports Relief.

Please Note: Children who have a place in our nursery do not automatically move into our Reception class. Parents and carers must apply for a reception place for their child through Oxfordshire admissions:
