Meet the staff


Rachel Lewis

I am delighted to welcome you to Hindley Nursery School!
The information contained in this website is intended to provide you with a flavour of the provision on offer at our Nursery School.

At our most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2023 Ofsted inspectors found that our school continues to be outstanding.

We believe that learning for young children should be fun, with routines that develop independence and the ability to make choices and positive attitudes to school and learning.

Our aspiration for the children who attend Hindley Nursery School is that they become confident, self-motivated learners, with the necessary skills and attitudes to achieve the best possible outcomes in their learning and development.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our Nursery School!

“Children thrive at this delightful and welcoming nursery school. They are happy and safe. They are exeptionally motivated to learn, staff aim to give children the best start to their early education. They make sure that children do not miss any opportunity to learn.” -Ofsted report March 2023
