St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another





This is the place where you will find information about our Weekly Stay & Play Sessions, the provision we offer at Nursery and where we share Nursery news about what we are doing in class with our current group of children. 


Hello and Welcome to St John's Nursery

In our Nursery there are two teachers:

Mrs Barker and Mrs Clough 

and our Teaching & Learning Assistants

Miss Barnes and Mrs Cumming


  • Nursery starts each day at 8.45am. If your child requires morning only sessions (15hrs a week) they should be collected by 11.45am (doors open at 11.30). 
  • The morning session ends at 11.45am when those children who stay all day (30hrs) have their Packed Lunches (11.45am-12.15pm) which they bring from home before continuing the day with the afternoon session.
  • The Nursery Day finishes at 3.15pm (doors open from 3.00pm). All children should be collected by 3.15pm
  • All Nursery Children receive free milk and a fruit snack each day and have access to indoor and outdoor provision throughout each session. 
  • All sessions are Teacher-led.


Every child will be allocated a Key Worker who will make sure they are always settled, happy and learning.

Parents & Carers will be able to contact the Key Worker by email at

January 2022 - Sensory play - We made orange play dough with a hint of thyme today. We had lots of herbs and spices to choose from such as ginger and mint but we chose thyme. We all had a mix and a kneed in order to make sure the play dough is super squashy and squishy.
