Welcome to our school

"Harrington Nursery School is a very happy place for children to learn.  Unwavering in your desire for every children to SPARKLE.  You put the children at the heart of everything you do." (Ofsted, 2017)


We are an 'OUTSTANDING' 80 place school which offers flexible facilities for children between 3 – 4 years old.  We value every opportunity to work in partnership with the whole school community.


Harrington Nursery School is a distinctive school because....

We are a designated Teaching School (September 2014) and a National Support School (February 2015).  The Headteacher is a National Leader of Education and the Strategic Business Director is a Specialist Leader of Education. 

We are winners of the NASEN Excellent Practice in Early Years SEND Award and runners up in the National Early Years Pupil Premium Awards.

We have achieved the SEND Standards Award.

We have developed a learning environment updated and refurbished in line with communication friendly spaces and are committed to using digital technology in order to prepare children for the unknown world of tomorrow.

We facilitate learning that inspires children to go in search of wonder, including visits to a wide variety of places and by focusing on learning outside the classroom and the 'POWER' of the outsider.

We recognise the importance of mindfulness and take time to 'spread the happiness'.
