Sunbeams is the maintained nursery class at Stepgates Community School. Like all classes at Stepgates we have full use of all the school's facilities including the library, outdoor spaces and the hall for P.E. and special occasions. 

We provide a setting where children are happy and learn through play, supported by experienced caring staff. We pride ourselves on our excellent relationships with parents. Your child's Key Person will feed back directly to you on how your child is enjoying school and share their progress with you.

At Sunbeams Nursery our vision for all children is

Learning and growing together
