Our Provision

Welcome to Alfred Lord Tennyson School and Nursery, we are a unique school based across two sites.

Our Nursery, EYFS and Key Stage One provision is based at our Infant Site on Tennyson Road, catering for children aged 3-7. Our Key Stage Two children are based at our Junior Site on Alfred Street, catering for children aged 7-11.

We are a one form entry Primary school providing full time education for classes up to 30 children. As part of our provision, Alfred Lord Tennyson School offers funded places for 3 and 4-year-olds in our Nursery provision. This includes the 15 hours weekly entitlement and 30 hours weekly entitlement, for working families who are eligible for free Nursery education for 38 weeks per year during term time. We also have very competitive rates should you require extra hours that are not funded.

Our Nursery provision is located at our Tennyson Road Site and can be accessed through the main entrance to the school. The aim of our Nursery provision is to provide a broad and balanced learning experience which embraces the seven areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

We will encourage your children to develop communication and oracy skills, and investigation and problem-solving skills, through interaction with adults and other children in our provision.


We will develop your child’s imagination through play and by providing a range of themed experiences such as celebrating the seasons, exploring jobs, celebrating traditions from all around the world such as Chinese New Year, Diwali, Valentines Day and Easter. These first-hand experiences allow our children to respect different cultures, gain confidence and express themselves through art, music and dance. We also hope that we inspire our children and prepare them to become the next generation of pop stars, authors, doctors, dentists, plumbers, scientists and explorers.


Your child’s imagination, oracy and a love of reading is also promoted in our Nursery through sharing stories every day in our dedicated reading spaces and library, singing nursery rhymes and songs and acting out stories.


During their time with us, your children will be able to grow and develop in a fun and stimulating learning environment. We have lots of indoor and outdoor space for the children to explore. Our designated indoor provision has a curiosity area and small world role play area.


Our wonderful outdoor provision consists of a private outdoor area for our Nursery children and shared spaces with our small group of reception children. Our outdoor provision enables them to explore, take risks and stay active. They can pedal bikes and ride on the ride ons on our purpose-built tracks, play and climb in our nature area, dig and cook in the mud kitchen, make music with the array of pots and pans, explore with the water equipment and grow plants in our grow beds.


As our Nursery provision is part of our Primary School, our Nursery children will also sometimes join in with some of our whole school events such as assemblies, World Book Day and Diversity days.
