Cleator Moor Nursery School


The Nursery was purpose built and opened in 1971.  Over the years it has provided young children from Cleator Moor and the surrounding area with an excellent beginning to their school life. 

Since 1998 we have achieved Outstanding in all areas in 5 consecutive Ofsted Inspections (1998, 2002, 2007, 2009 and 2012); a very rare achievement, of which we are very proud.

In 2001 our Nursery was awarded Beacon status having been identified as amongst the best performing schools in the country. We gained a School Achievement Award in 2003 and were placed on OFSTED’s Honours List in 2005.  In November 2006 we achieved National Healthy School Status, this confirmed the high value we put on this area of the curriculum.

Here at Cleator Moor Nursery, we believe in giving all the children the best possible start to their school life.  Essentially, this is done by providing a safe, happy and friendly environment for the children.
