Healdswood Nursery Admissions Arrangements



We are really pleased to share with you our recent Ofsted Inspection Report (Nov 2021) in which we were awarded Good in all areas. Below is a copy of the report which summarisies their key findings. Alternatively the report can be accessed by clicking on the link to OFSTED website.



School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.

Pupil Premium


The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.”

At Healdswood Infant and Nursery School, we have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure.

We are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential. Pupil premium funding, along with allocations made from the school’s own budget will help ensure this money is spent to maximum effect.

Pupil Premium is an important payment for schools and a really good opportunity for eligible parents to get even more support for their children in schools.

Sports Grant


At Healdswood Infant and Nursery School we believe Physical Education (PE) and Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better. Through participation in Sport and PE, our pupils also learn about co-operation skills, teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others. We believe it is important for children to have a variety of skills to help them in their future. PE can develop children’s self-confidence and social skills through team building and individual achievements. We think even the smallest of achievements are important for their progression in sports.


We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools. Since then the government has been committed to funding Primary PE and Sport Premium funding. We are committed to using this resource to further improve the quality of our PE provision and extend the opportunities and experiences for our pupils.


Please see below how we have used our Sport Premium Funding to support our children:
