Nursery Provision and Admissions


Nursery Provision

We provide children with an engaging, broad and balanced Early Years curriculum which prepares them well for the next stage in their learning.

At Shirley Manor Primary Academy we aim to inspire and develop interest in learning for life within a happy, creative and secure environment.


We aim to:

  • Create a safe, happy place where everyone is known and valued, and where needs are acknowledged accepted and met.
  • Encourage each child to be independent and self-disciplined to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and respect for others and the environment.
  • Provide a stimulating range of activities.
  • To develop a “can do “attitude that will stay with the child for life.
  • To develop a child’s self-esteem.
  • To value and incorporate all aspects of children’s lives, building a strong partnership with parents and the community.
  • Ensure children make sustained progress.



We welcome children into our vibrant and successful Nursery from the term following their third birthday.  Your child can be added to our Nursery waiting list at any time by contacting the school office.

We have space for 26 children in the morning and the afternoon.

If  you would like to arrange a visit to see our provision and meet our very experienced, friendly and welcoming staff and children  please get in touch by contacting our school office  on 01274 679 320 or email us at

We look forward to meeting you and your child.
