Our Vision

Our vision is to work together in partnership to make a real and lasting difference to the lives, learning and opportunities of all young children and their families.


Each pupil at Whitegate Nursery School is entitled to:

  • High quality teaching
  • A supportive, nurturing ethos
  • The opportunity, encouragement and expectation to learn, make progress and attain high standards reaching their full potential
  • A rich, broad and balanced curriculum; personalised to individuals with high quality, first hand learning experiences
  • A learning environment inside and outside that is stimulating and challenging yet safe and secure
  • The opportunity to develop positive dispositions and attitudes with a readiness for lifelong learning


Our centre strives to create a collaborative family community, where each individual is valued, supported, empowered and feels they can succeed.

At Whitegate we value and support all families through our shared image of the child:

  • I am curious and love to explore
  • I am motivated and engaged
  • I feel secure because I believe I can!
  • I am willing to have a go and can persevere
  • I am creative and use my imagination
  • I am exploring my emotions and learning about other people
