We operate a maintained nursery school on site. The nursery is led by qualified teachers who are supported by NVQ3 level teaching assistants. Lunchtimes are also staffed by qualified team members. Our dedicated, professionally qualified and supportive staff encourage your child to enjoy and achieve. Our nursery and Foundation Stage Unit are consistently graded as ‘Good’ by Ofsted inspectors. During our last inspection Ofsted said we offered:
“good-quality provision and teaching…pupils make good progress.”
The teachers work closely with our Foundation Stage teachers to ensure that we provide fun, active, exciting and stimulating learning based sessions for your child.
We can offer an engaging, secure indoor and outdoor learning environment in which your child can access a wide range of resources. We provide a caring and nurturing environment in which staff strive to respond to each and every child’s needs and interests.
Nursery Plus is a County initiative to promote inclusion through early identification and assessment of children with a range of needs including speech and language, social, behavioural and emotional needs. A Nursery Plus teacher and Nursery Plus Teaching Assistant are based at Tavistock Community Primary & Nursery School, offering support to staff and children within the nursery and wider community, through in reach and outreach targeted work.
In the October 2012 Ofsted report the progress of children was rated as ‘Outstanding'.
