Welcome to Nursery 


In Nursery we love to learn outside which is where we spend most of our time, exploring our school grounds and local community. Don't forget to dress for the weather and bring lots of spares in a bag. We use lots of resources from the world around us to develop our understanding of lots of different concepts, we love singing songs and reading stories too!


In Nursery there are lots of different adults who are here to help you and chat to your adults about any worries too! Please feel free to contact us at the bottom of this page or at drop off or pick up time. Mrs Laws is  our Teacher, Mrs Steadman and Mrs Scott are our Teaching Assistants and we also have Mr Chirnside, Shelley and Abby who work with us in Nursery too.

See you soon!

  Meet the staff


Hi! I am Mrs Laws, I am our EYFS Lead and Nursery Teacher. I am very excited to be teaching in nursery again! I have taught in lots of different classes but mainly in early years which is my favourite area of school to teach in! In my spare time I love spending time outdoors with my family, walking my dog Bella and eating lots of cake!

Hey there, I am Mrs Steadman. I have worked at Catchgate for almost 9 years, across the school. I am looking forward to starting my second year working in early years. In my spare time I enjoy going for walks and eating good food with my young family. I love being outdoors in all weathers and look forward to getting to know you all better. 


Hello I am Mrs Scott. I love rubgy!! It is my favourite sport and I love to watch my favourite team St Helens. I have 1 pet cat called Jonas who I love to cuddle and he loves to climb! I love reading Harry Potter books too. I have two boys, one who has just became a teacher and the other who is studying for his A-Levels.

Hi Everyone, my name is Shelley. I am the 2 Year room lead but can't wait to start working with you on an afternoon! I love setting up messy play activities and using our whole bodies to explore, exploring gloop is my favourite! In my spare time I spend time with my family and watch one of my little boys play football, where I usually spend the time collecting natural resources to make things for our classrooms. I love eating pizza too!!

Hello, I am Abby! I usually work in the 2 Year room but will be joining you in nursery on an afternoon, reading stories are my favourite- I can wait to help put on shows using the puppets! I have a dog called Bella who I love taking for long walks and climbing mountains with- in all weathers! I love to dance and will often help put on shows when we're playing outside!
