Henshaw Nursery

Henshaw Nursery is an independent, registered charity, operating in Bardon Mill, providing early years care and education to a widespread area ranging from Haltwhistle to Haydon Bridge.  We are situated within Henshaw Primary School and work closely with the staff at this wonderful school to provide excellent transition arrangements as children move from Nursery to Reception.
Our ethos is to create a happy, friendly and stimulating environment where our children’s needs always come first. We offer places from 18 months and also the two, three and four years 15 and 30 hours free entitlement.  
In our most recent Ofsted inspection in 2024, we were rated OUTSTANDING for the second time in a row.  Inspectors commented that:

·       The manager is passionate and dedicated to providing the very best for children, their families and staff. She supports staff to plan a curriculum which helps children to thrive and make the best possible progress.

·       The manager works very closely with the on-site school. Staff provide exceptional support to help to prepare children for school, such as by familiarising themselves with the school environment. For example, older children eat lunch with Reception-age children each day in the school hall.

·       Parents are extremely positive about their children's experiences in the nursery. Staff share a wealth of information with parents about their children's development. They invite parents into nursery to share their children's learning in many ways, such as for stay-and-play sessions, on annual outings to the coast, to read to children and to taste crumble their children make from the apples they pick from the trees.

Here at Henshaw CE Primary School, we work very closely with Henshaw Nursery, which operates on site.
