Information for Parents and Carers
Truro Nursery School was established by Mrs Patricia Kent MBE and given to the Local Authority in 1972. The school has been extended considerably since then and we now offer places to 80 three and four year olds and 20 two year olds every year.
Our inspection by Ofsted is different to that of a private, voluntary or independent nursery or pre school. This is because we are a local authority school and as such we are subject to the rigorous section 5 inspection; the same as any other Primary or Secondary School.
We have worked with the children’s communication charity, ICAN to develop our expertise in support language and communication development. We are also qualified as a forest school and have been trained by Jabadao to develop physical development and movement play. We have an Outstanding Ofsted grade and strive to be leaders in early education within Cornwall.
We work with a number of other partners to offer services both in school and in the local community. We were designated a teaching school by the Department for Education and we now work with One Cornwall; Cornwall’s teaching school hub.
