Sawley Infant & Nursery School is a large Infant and Nursery school, on a shared primary site.
Our school motto is ‘Sparkle and Shine’ and this is obvious throughout everything we do, from the gemstone class names to the way we treat every child as unique and special. We want everyone to reach their full potential and take time to get to know children’s strengths, talents, interests and experiences.
The children are at the heart of every decision we make, from the curriculum and experiences they have, to the staffing choices we make. We place a great emphasis on wellbeing and inclusivity. When we feel safe, secure and happy, we are far more likely to learn, Sparkle and Shine!
