St Mary’s Community Nursery School Consultation

Our Nursery School has been subject to a consultation to close by Cheshire West and Chester Council. In parallel with this is a proposal to lower the age range at Overleigh St Marys CE Primary School from 4 to 11 to 3 to 11. This would enable a nursery class to open at the school replacing the early years education previously provided by us, St Marys Community Nursery School.

No decision has yet been published by the Local Authority.

We would encourage all parents who want a nursery place for their child for September 2021 to request an application form from our School Office 01244 981222. In the event of the proposals going ahead and our school closing all applications will be transferred and managed by Overleigh St Mary’s Primary School.
