St Edmund's Catholic Primary School and Nursery

Parish, Family, School


We are excited to welcome you to our Nursery pages.  We are set in a purpose-built building which has a large classroom, a covered outdoor learning area and a playground shared with the other Early Years classes.

At the beginning of the year, we prepared a transition document to help you to find out more about Nursery - please click here to view this. 

Our Nursery doors open from 8:45, unfortunately parents are not allowed to enter the school building due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Mrs Preston is the Nursery teacher.  Mrs Clarke is the Nursery Nurse,
Mrs Gould and Miss Capillo are Nursery Assistants.  We also have Mrs Gaynor, Mrs De Leon and Mrs Elliman who support children in the Nursery.

We are also encouraging communication with parents through email. Please contact Mrs Preston by email via the office at

Our session times are:

08:45am - 11:45am Morning Session

12.20am – 3.20pm Afternoon Session

Children will have access to reading books in our Nursery and are able to bring them home.  Click here to view a suggested reading list for children in Nursery.


Children wear a full school uniform, jumpers and coats can be purchased at the school shop in Whitton High Street. Please make sure that all your child's items are clearly labelled.  Due to Covid restrictions we cannot have any bags in nursery and we provide spare clothes if needed.

Please also bear in mind that play in Nursery can be very messy! Whilst we take every opportunity to remind child to wear aprons to protect their clothes in play, sometimes children forget or the aprons do not protect every part of their clothes.

As we spend a lot of time outside we request that children come to school in a sensible outdoor coat/clothing appropriate for the weather conditions. During the summer we ask that children have sun cream applied before coming to the nursery and are provided with a hat.
