Haven Nursery:  ​​"Magic Happens Here"​ 

​​We are delighted to announce that Haven Nursery have come in the top 3 nationally for the ‘Excellent Practice in Early Years Award’ sponsored by Nursery World  and NASEN.

​​​This award recognises early years’ organisations where they have improved outcomes for children with SEND through their outstanding practice.


This was also reflected in our recent outstanding Ofsted where the inspector commented:  ‘staff are committed to improving the life chances of every child and the care and support they provide are exemplary.’​  

100% employment as NQTs*

We are delighted to announce that ALL of our 2017/18 cohort of ITT** students have secured employment as NQTs within our cluster of schools. ​ With our support and guidance, they have become creative, confident, engaging teachers and we have enjoyed training each and every one.  Our pupils are very lucky to have them.
   *NQT=Newly Qualified Teachers   ** ITT= Initial Teacher Training

​​ Our strapline: "Building Strong Foundations for Life"  ​​
is more than a phrase, it underpins everything we do and our children flourish because of that ethos.
