Dear all,                                                                                                                                    


I write to consult with you on our plans to run our Nursery and Pre-school provision as Governor led at Chorley, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery.


Specifically, the proposal is to reinstate the age range of Chorley, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery to 4 – 11 Years, as opposed to the current 3-11 years. The proposal has arisen to allow us more flexibility within the nursery. We will still continue to offer the highest quality educational experience for nursery age children in order to ensure our children are school ready.


Under the new proposals we will have more flexibility with staffing, however, you will still see the same familiar faces.

We will still be able to offer up to 26 places per session, 3 &4 year old places, that being 26 in the morning and 26 in the afternoon, with experienced and passionate EYFS staff, according to necessary adult to child ratios.


The structure of the day for Chorley, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery will reflect that of the school. There will be no disruption to our current provision and there will be no impact on the current function or quality you are already used to receiving.


This consultation ends on Friday 30th June.


Our governing body will consider any feedback you may wish to offer before making a final recommendation to run our Nursery and School as Governor led provision under Section 27 of the Education Act.


Please contact school for any further information, we are always here to help.



Mr P Smyth
