About Us


We are the Lions Nursery Class of Rockbeare Church of England Primary School, based in our own purpose built building catering for children aged 3 years and over. We work very closely with the Reception teachers in the main school with planning a cohesive, progressive curriculum, transition and in sharing outside visitors and trips.

The main room is divided into dedicated areas to allow free flow play in all the areas of learning. There is a role play corner, numeracy area, messy play area, book corner etc.  The children have access to a safe and secure deck and outside play space.

We are a total communication setting using Makaton to aid children’s learning where appropriate.


When your child moves from the Nursery to Reception Class, you will need to apply to the Local Authority through the normal admissions process. A place in Nursery does not guarantee a place in the schools' Reception Class.


Please see our adventures in the children's tab under the class page Lions.
