New Nursery Class at St Aloysius' School

New Nursery Class at North Oxford Catholic Primary School to Open in January 2017

Proposals to introduce a nursery class at St. Aloysius’ Catholic Primary School in Oxford have recently been approved by Oxfordshire County Council and the Archdiocese of Birmingham. Doors are to open in January 2017 to children aged three and above.

The school is lowering its entrance age in recognition of the limited number of Catholic nursery places available for children in Oxford city. The new nursery class will provide term-time nursery education for up to 26 children, with learning led by qualified teachers and support staff. The nursery, to be called Acorn Class, will be accommodated next to the school’s Reception Class, creating a dedicated Early Years Foundation Stage Unit. The Catholic values and ethos of the primary school will be central to the curriculum and daily life of the nursery.

Father Daniel, the School Chaplain said "It is very exciting that St. Aloysius' School is now able to expand its provision to cover the nursery years. I hope that this will be of real value for Catholic parents, looking for the best for their children from their earliest years."

The school is taking enquiries for the nursery class now. In addition to the Government’s 15 funded hours, parents will be able to buy additional hours to take advantage of full-time provision. Lunchtime wraparound cover will also be provided.
