Governing Body/Staff

Chair of Governors - Rebecca Robinson

This school is one of only two Local Authority Nursery Schools in Cornwall.  It is purpose built and equipped to a very high standard to meet the educational needs of 2  – 5 year old children.  The staff include highly experienced, qualified teachers and teaching assistants.  The staff team is made up of four qualified teachers, all our key workers have NVQ3 qualifications or above and we have recently become a Makaton Accredited Nursery School.  All of our staff are qualified to meet the welfare requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. The school is a calm, secure and stimulating place for children.

In January 2002, we were delighted to be designated by the Government as an Early Excellence Centre.  This reflects not only the high quality of the education offered here, but also recognises the other services we now offer for babies and younger children and for their parents and carers.  We also offer links to and training within the wider community.  We are pleased to have introduced Story Sacks, and the OASIS Group into Cornwall, all of which are of great benefit to children, and parents too.

The wider ‘community services’ offered are further supported by being designated a Children’s Centre in 2006.  In 2010 Camborne Children’s Centres were established and led by one Children Centre Manager to ensure equality of access to services for all families.

We are always striving to find better ways to meet the educational, care and training needs of our families and children so let us know if we can help you or if you have any ideas which would benefit us all.  

As a Local Authority School we are inspected under the same OFSTED inspection system as are all other Primary and Secondary Schools.  We were last inspected in 2015 and given an Outstanding report, copies of which can be obtained from the school.

We want your child to leave us feeling secure, confident, and having been given a sound educational base for all their future learning experiences.  You, their parents, are their first and most important teachers and we welcome your help and co-operation in all their learning.

The Governors and the Staff hope that your child will be very happy in our school.
