Pastoral Care

The nursery is overseen by the Head of Prep Mary Layland.  It is managed on a day to day basis by two qualified teachers Angela King and Beverley Smithen and there is at least one nursery assistant in each class.

St Clare’s provides a return to traditional old fashioned values and standards in a modern setting.  We believe good manners and high personal standards of dress and conduct cost nothing and that a culture of mutual respect and courtesy is a valuable life skill where our highest priority is the safeguarding of all members of our community.

The nursery provides a safe, secure and happy environment and the daily practice aims to meet the individual needs of each child through their personal, social and emotional development. The staff promote the welfare and well-being of the children where they learn mutual respect for one another.  The motto of the nursery is ‘sharing is caring’ so the children are learning an attitude of care, concern and responsibility towards others.

This enables the children to develop their confidence and self-esteem and therefore has a positive impact on their holistic learning and well-being.

We value your child’s happiness.
