Early years provision

Bligh's Early Years provision offers a dynamic beginning to a child’s educational journey. We believe that offering an engaging environment with skilled adults is key to ensuring all children build firm foundations for their future learning. Our children are encouraged to be curious, to solve problems, to follow their interests and to be motivated learners. They will have plenty of opportunities and experiences to learn inside and out, to learn to work with others and to flourish.


Our Nursery

Bligh Nursery is a valued part of Bligh Primary School and is an exciting educational  provision for children aged two, three and four years old.

At Bligh, we believe every child is unique and should have the chance to flourish socially, emotionally, physically and academically - we want the best for the children in our care.  Young children need opportunities to play, explore, have fun and socialise with other children.  They need adults who care and understand young children in an environment which is engaging, stimulating and full of new challenges.

Our latest prospectus can be found here.
