Chatham Nursery School

Chatham Nursery School is one of only five maintained Nursery Schools Liverpool.
Chatham Nursery School was originally called Chatham Place Nursery School and was situated in Chatham Place near Overbury Street L7. It was built during the Second World War and offered places for the children of mothers who were working in the ammunitions factory, supporting the war effort. The nursery building was intended to be a temporary structure but it is still standing today.
In 2008 Chatham Place Nursery School relocated to Picton Childrens and Medical Centre and became Chatham Nursery School . It became part of a hard federation with St Hugh’s Catholic Primary School and  Picton Children’s Centre
In 2013 Chatham Nursery School took over what was the Picton Sure Start nursery and so Chatham Nursery School became a Chatham Nursery School Birth to Five Provision.

April 2020 - It is with deep regret that we have had to say goodbye to our baby room. We have not made these decisions lightly but in order to continue to offer the level of support and care to our children and maintain our nursery provision these changes are necessary. We therefore no longer except children who are under the age of two years old. We also made the decision to open only during term time between the hours of 8:00am-4:30pm

Special Needs

Special Needs
We welcome all children, including those with additional needs, into our school, and are proud of the progress children with additional needs make during their time with us. All children at Chatham Nursery School follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and, if appropriate, are given further support through small group work and intervention. We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students. Attendance is vitally important to enable children to achieve their full potential and we work alongside parents to ensure their child is able to attend school regardless of any additional need. Our Special Educational Needs & Disability co-ordinators (SENCO) are Angela Pagan and Rachel Rodick. Our Governor with responsibility for SEND is Rita Byrne.
