Our core values are: Kindness, Honesty, Respect, Courage and Fairness. We aim to inspire, motivate, engage and empower our children in and through their learning providing an excellent education enabling children to be the best they can be.  In Simpson Nursery Class the child’s voice is at the centre of our practice.


The school works very closely in partnership with parents/carers and the wider community and it has a very active and effective Parent Council that helps to enhance the experiences of the children and raise funds for a range of additional resources.

One of the key strengths within Simpson Primary is the culture of collegiate working and it is within that ever-strengthening culture of continuous improvement that the nursery will work together with the whole school community, to take forward identified priorities.
