Ark Brunel Primary Academy runs a full time Nursery for children who experience their fourth birthday during the academic year. The Nursery caters for a maximum of 30 pupils as part of the Early Years Provision. The Nursery is included in the main school building and the children interact with the Reception classes in a shared outdoor area.

Our Nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, whereby all children learn and develop, are kept healthy and safe, and develop a varied range of knowledge and skills. At Ark Brunel, we aim to provide high expectations for all, ensuring children have the opportunity to develop independent skills in an enabling environment.
Details of how to apply for a place at Ark Brunel can be found here.


There are two Reception classes in our Early Years Foundation Stage.
