A newly refurbished nursery setting at Hipswell Church of England Primary School has been a big success, say staff.

The classroom and facilities have been updated and this has had a positive impact on the high quality of educational provision, the school says.

The school and nursery, which is open every morning from 8.45am to 11.45am, is next to Risedale Sports and Community College, in Hipswell, Catterick Garrison.

“I love working here. We ensure that all children feel safe and secure and they making rapid progress with their learning. “

Head Jon Sykes is also delighted with the changes which have been made to the nursery.

“We were concerned that the setting looked a little old and tired so we redesigned the inside area.

“These changes have further improved the provision we can offer to the local community.”
