We are a culturally diverse, inclusive Nursery School and Children’s Centre within the London Borough of Barnet. We pride ourselves on the support we offer all children including those with additional and complex needs.
We would like to share a window into our schools. Our BEYA Nursery Schools are places of possibility; living spaces where children and childhood are honoured , their ideas and abilities valued. A place where children and adults are learning from each other. Where children are seen as individuals and achievements are celebrated.
We value free play and open ended learning as opposed to fixed goals and outcomes. Free play is an essential and beneficial right of all children. In our schools of possibilities, adults observe children to understand rather than assess against measurable targets. We observe their innovation, their creativity, their ideas , their intents and feelings. The insight that we gain enables us to discuss, reflect and plan our environment to support and shape future learning.
BEYA is working hard to build a culture of trust, collaboration and development beyond our three schools and Children's Centre and we are keen to share our staff and our practice.
The last inspection by Ofsted rated St. Margaret’s Nursery as an Outstanding Nursery School, where ‘all staff have exceptionally high levels of expertise which are used to help children, whatever their background, home language or ability, to make outstanding progress.’The full report is available to download below.
