Ofsted 'GOOD' Provider - July 2019
Message from our Headteacher
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We are a very caring and friendly nursery and infant school, with preschool childcare available on site, situated in the Damsonwood area of Solihull. Our aim is to provide the best possible early education for our children and we were recently recognised as a 'Good' school by Ofsted (July 2019).
We provide schooling for children aged 3-7 years old and also have on onsite childcare facility known as 'Woodies Childcare'. Woodies provide childcare for children aged 2-8 years old throughout the year.
This website is designed to give you a 'taster' of our wonderful school and nursery. We hope it shows you our nurturing, child-centred approach, focused on high-quality education for all. We hope it will provide information for both prospective and current families.
Please feel free to have a look around and, if you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us either by telephone on 0121 705 8652 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Zoe Jeffs, School Secretary, and the office team will be happy to answer any queries.
If you are considering Damson Wood Nursery & Infant School or Woodies Childcare for your child, please call us to arrange a visit and I would be more than happy to show you around our school and share more about our ethos.
