Gooderstone Church of England Primary Academy, part of the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT), has reopened its nursery to provide much needed places for three- to four-years-old for the surrounding villages and Swaffham.

Sarah Godbold, executive headteacher of the Churchside Federation of Mundford and Gooderstone Church of England Primary Academies said: "The Gooderstone Goslings provision will offer places for children aged three to four, a provision that is desperately needed in the locality."

"The nursery children have become part of Owls class with both our reception and year one.

"As numbers grow, we plan to create a class of nursery and reception, year one and two class, year three and four class and a year five and six class.

"We currently have two children on roll and have a further eight available morning or full day places."

Oliver Burwood, chief executive of Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust said: "The benefits of a school nursery for children and families are many and this is why we have added this type of provision to so many of our schools across DNEAT.

"One of the most important factors is how well transition to school works in such a setting by supporting children to become ‘school ready."

"Being in a mixed age group also brings benefits, including opportunities to enrich children’s learning, Gooderstone Church of England Primary Academy is rated as a Good school with a quality EYFS provision that we are pleased to be able to extend out to younger children.

"We know that children make good progress because adults provide lots of opportunities for them to explore, learn and develop across all areas of learning."
