Gig Mill

Gig Mill strives to provide the best possible education for your child. An education where each child feels valued, cared for and motivated to achieve their very best. We have high expectations and we aim to develop in our children a real sense of belonging along with high levels of self esteem and confidence. Whilst recognising that our pupils need to be equipped with key skills in English and Maths, we strongly feel that they also need to develop a real passion for learning and we try to enhance this learning through a whole range of experiences both within and outside the classroom environment through an exciting and vibrant curriculum.

We work in partnership. Governors, staff, parents and children all help to make this happen. By working together, we move forward and create a nurturing environment and opportunities for all our children to succeed.

Our Nursery - Giggles Nursery

We are delighted to have a maintained Nursery on site as part of our Early Years Foundation Stage.

26 places are available for 5 morning or afternoon sessions and we can offer the universal 15 hours a week entitlement during term time from Monday - Friday 8.30am - 11.30am, or 12.30pm - 3.30pm (Subject to availability).

We are very fortunate to have a lovely outdoor area and a well resourced spacious indoor environment for Nursery children to learn with us. 

Staff in Nursery are experienced in Early Years practice and deliver a curriculum to meet the needs of our children.

The link with parents and carers is vitally important to support children’s learning and parents/carers are invited into Nursery on a regular basis.

We are very proud of our 'Good' Ofsted rating, which includes an 'Outstanding' judgement for Early Years...Our Ofsted report from March 2020 states:-

"Children make an exceptional start in early years. Teachers work hard to understand the needs and abilities of the children when they join the school. Well-planned and exciting lessons inspire the children to start powerful learning journeys".
