Leigh St Peters CE Primary - Nursery and Pre School

Nursery and Pre-school teacher led provision.

Leigh St Peter's Primary School provides Education for children from the age of 2 - 11 years between the hours of 8:45am to 3:15pm

We also offer an extended provision service and have a breakfast club facility run by staff members on site for children aged 3 and over. This is from 07:45am until 08:45am where children are able to come to school early and have breakfast if they would like to. Children are then taken through to school ready for the start of the main school day. We have a good variety of after school clubs for everyone throughout the week. These are open to children from Reception to Year 6 and cost £2 per night per child.
