At the Nell Gwynn we are fully committed to giving all our children access to high quality early years education, recognising the importance of laying a firm foundation for later learning. Our aim is to provide a rich and relevant curriculum through play, enabling children to make the best possible progress. We are dedicated to inclusion and our strength lies in responding to children’s diverse learning needs. We actively seek to remove the barriers to learning and participation which may hinder or exclude children. It is our wish to see our children thrive and feel valued as members of the wider school community.
