Welcome to Goresbrook Nursery

We are a primary school situated in Barking and Dagenham which interlinks with the secondary school, known as a through school.

We have attractive school grounds, including a beautiful outdoor learning area, which the children use as part of the wider curriculum on a free flow basis. The learning opportunities are well planned and engage each child in age appropriate play. We are passionate about our role in society and strive to devise a rich and diverse curriculum to inspire and engage all our children.

Goresbrook’s nursery curriculum recognises that the early years curriculum should be built upon learning through play and exciting challenges, whilst also placing the prime areas (personal; social and emotional development; and attitudes and behaviours) at its core. We aim to create the highest standards in learning and teaching. We strongly believe that our children should develop a love for learning that prepares them for their future. We ensure that they feel safe and secure, and that they have opportunities to enjoy regular challenge to facilitate them reaching their full potential. 

Our school is a multi-cultural school: we are proud that our children and families are from diverse backgrounds and speak a wide range of languages. We value and showcase our community and families around our school, and we celebrate diversity throughout our curriculum to ensure all pupils and families feel valued.

The curriculum is designed to allow for diverse and differentiated outcomes to be developed for each pupil. This aims to ensure that a strong foundation is developed which serves as a solid basis for a child’s learning journey. As such, every child is carefully nurtured to aspire to be a forever reader, learner and researcher! 

Our curriculum allows pupils to experience and produce work that they may not be exposed to until much later in life. Children develop transferable skills that can be applied both across the curriculum, and outside of the classroom environment.

Every child should be seen as a budding flower to be carefully nurtured. We will facilitate the growth of each child towards becoming well-rounded and insightful individuals.  

Please explore our website, and we look forward to welcoming you to our school.
