The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Bluebells Nursery 


Welcome to Bluebells Nursery!

We are a vibrant, friendly, fully inclusive school nursery who recently achieved an ‘Outstanding’ grade from OFSTED.

We offer an imaginative, stimulating multi-sensory, and language rich environment, with carefully planned provision to meet the children’s individual needs using the EYFS framework. For further information please follow this link.

Our learning is ‘Child led’, following interests and needs. We will update you regularly on our learning adventures. Please don’t forget to check your child’s Learning journey on Tapestry!

We are a sessional setting and have the capacity to take up to 26 children per session.

We take children from the age of 3 and offer 15 hours of nursery per week. These children attend either a morning or afternoon session each day.

In addition to this we also offer 30 hours for working parents of 3 and 4-year olds. These children eat their lunch at nursery and attend both morning and afternoon sessions.
