Pre-school Risk Assessment (Coronavirus) September 2021

St Barnabas Pre-school Ofsted inspection: GOOD

Our Pre-school was inspected by Ofsted on 6th December 2018 and the report published on 28th December 2018, it can be found on the Ofsted website using this link or you can download the report in pdf format here

The Ofsted judgement is that 'The quality and standards of the early years provision is GOOD' and the inspector notes that "Staff provide activities that support all areas of learning both indoors and outdoors.  . . . Staff are warm and caring. They help children feel valued and praise them for using good manners and listening.'

Our pre-school is held in the church hall on Monday to Friday mornings, 9:15am-12:15pm 
Places must be booked. LEA covers fees for 3 & 4 year-olds, but we
take children from 2 years and can accept 2 year old funding.

Fees are 10 per morning session (This will be updated to 11 per morning session in January)

For further information please contact Sarah Bodle on 07803 690386 Mon - Fri 8am -12 noon - outside of these hours please leave a message and someone will be in touch as soon as possible. 

You can also contact the Pre-school team by email at which is a regularly monitored mailbox.
