We are delighted to let you know that following the success of our grant application, the Governing Body of Wellow School has agreed to open an 8am-6pm pre-school on the Wellow School site.

This provides a wonderful opportunity to bring under one roof, the care and knowledge of children in the area from 2 years old right through to 11 years old. Getting to know families from an early starting point means that we can, over time build a community that is uniquely available to the people of Wellow and the surrounding areas, to ensure that our children have the very best start to their education and life journey.

Wellow Pre-School will be a teacher led setting with a fully trained, qualified and experienced, early Years Teacher leading the unit as well as other NVQ qualified staff. Pre-school children will share all the benefits of school resources (hall space, library, music area, large field and extensive grounds) in the familiar comfort of a cosy dedicated pre-school space. Combined with the school’s infrastructure, expertise in teaching and learning and strong leadership and governance, our onsite pre-school will provide high quality provision, with a seamless transition to school.

The pre-school will formally open in September 2018 ready for the new school year but in the meantime, any enquiries about the preschool should be emailed to

The availability of an on-site pre-school does not change the way children apply and are admitted to the main school. Children will be equally prepared to move and attend any primary school. Even with the pre-school as part of the school all parents must make an application for their child to be offered a place in the Reception classes, i.e. they will not automatically progress from the pre-school to the Reception class. Applications will be handled using the County Council’s school admissions policy which gives priority to children living in the catchment area.
