Who's Who

 Meet the staff at our school!

Mrs Beth Brice


I am delighted to welcome you to Crossens Nursery School!
The information contained in this website is intended to provide you with a flavour of the provision on offer at our Nursery School.
At our most recent Ofsted inspection in June 2017 our provision was judged to be Outstanding in all areas and it was recognised that children are at the heart of everything that happens at this school.
We believe that learning for young children should be fun, with routines that develop independence, the ability to make choices and positive attitudes to school and learning.
Our aspiration for the children who attend Crossens Nursery School is that they become confident, self-motivated learners, with the necessary skills and attitudes to achieve the best possible outcomes in their learning and development.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our Nursery School!
