Alverton School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. To achieve our commitment, we will ensure the continuous development of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers.

The Woodland Nursery


The Woodland Nursery is set within Alverton School grounds and is part of Alverton School. It has a safe, secure and unique woodland environment in which children are encouraged to play and explore. We believe that access to natural environments has a direct impact on children’s wellbeing and education, which is why our children have free flow access to the outdoor areas throughout our sessions. 

As well as our incredible natural woodland area, we also have a large vegetable patch (complete with chickens) which we encourage the children to help develop and maintain, a soft-tarmac large scale construction area, a “Secret Garden” complete with bikes, trikes and playground equipment and access to the school’s large 2 acre playing field. Inside we have two spacious and well resourced natural indoor classrooms, which include busy home corners, cosy “Book Nooks", construction, small world areas and craft areas as well as a separate sensory room.

We also have a community room that is available to hire and are keen to establish mother and baby groups and visits by health professionals.
