Welcome to Early Years! We are fortunate enough to be on our own site on The Leyes a short walk away from The Lane site (Y1 to Y6).

Our Early Years Unit caters for children from the age of 3 who are entitled to part time education, and 4 year olds who receive full time education. Both age ranges follow the Early Years Curriculum.

The Nursery teachers are Mrs Bramwell & Miss Hudson and the Reception teachers are Mrs Messruther and Miss Onyett.


These children are entitled to part time education from the term after they are 3 years old. Currently they are entitled to 15 hours of ‘free’ education, but additional sessions can be purchased at a cost of £13.50 per session.

Children can also stay for lunch club where they can enjoy a school meal for £2.55 or bring a packed lunch. The Lunch Club Supervision charge is £4.50 per day.


This stage caters for 4 year old children who commence full time education in the September of the academic year they turn 5. In both stages children flourish in a learning environment that caters for their specific needs. They learn through a play based curriculum and have access to large and well equipped outside areas.

Children are happy and relaxed and make excellent progress both socially and academically.

If you are considering a place and would like to come and visit us, please get in contact to arrange a time. We are always happy to talk about what we have to offer here at Osbaldwick Primary Academy. 

If you are considering a Nursery place for your child, we have stay and play sessions every term for all prospective Nursery children and their parents to come and get a feel for the setting and to meet the staff and try out some of the exciting equipment and resources.

If you would like to register your child in Nursery you will need to fill out an enrolment form and return to the school office. We will get in contact with you the term prior to your child starting Nursery to invite you to a New Starters Meeting and to arrange a home visit.
