The children have loved their forest school sessions so far this term. Each group of four have learnt how to light a fire safely to make hot chocolate and searched for mini beasts in the secret garden.


We will be making a group statement on this but, I've had so many people ask so here it is.

When we started this, we meant business. We aren't here for the short term wins, but the long term aims and changes.

We may Independent but that isn't all that makes us different. We've been complimented on our professionalism, we're working as hard as we can, we have our heads in papers learning as much as we can, taking nothing as given. We're working with others and we are making a difference.

But, imagine if there were more of us? Just imagine ...

As usual, an open approach from us. No secrets here. This is what we're aiming for.

Please share 🙏

We are very excited for a new Autumn Term !

We have been working hard to get everything ready to welcome our children back and our new starters!

After a difficult summer term, we are stronger than ever, with an amazing team and a brilliant community spirit. Thank you to everyone involved in the fight to keep the Nursery open. We were overwhelmed by the kindness shown and we will be forever grateful!

We are now looking at creating a ‘Friends of Great Coates Nursery School’ page to support our communuty/fundraising events, gardening etc ! Please get in touch if you wish to be involved xx

On Sunday, I attended the public meeting held at Great Goates Village Hall to discuss the announcement by NELC that they have gone into consultation to look at the future of Great Coates Village Nursery (and Scartho Nursery and the Reynolds Street Day Care setting).

The meeting was very well attended, with the local community coming out to support the nursery. It is clear that the nursery is a much-valued asset and that the closure of it would have a negative impact on the village and its people - and particularly the children and families and the nursery team.

We heard from residents, local campaigners, nursery staff, and local Councillors, that they have all contacted the Council in order to receive more information so they can understand what basis the council will be making their decisions about the nursery’s future.

As I said on Sunday, I am in the same position myself. I wrote to the Chief Executive and the Leader of the Council on 30th June 2023 and asked for the following details (which I am yet to receive):

"What were the reasons behind making the decision to consult on the potential closures?
Has the council undertaken a scoping exercise locally to understand the nursery school provision - to include:
Child spaces,
Location of provision (to ensure we don't leave areas with no provision nearby)
Quality of provision (Ofsted grades),
Proximity to family hubs or other pre-school services,
Opportunities for combined,
Discussions with other academy groups or providers who may wish to take the provision over?"

I find it very concerning that local elected councillors also seem to have little or no detail either, despite requesting them.

I am not a member or employee of the Council. Members of Parliament have no involvement or influence on the workings of a council or the decisions that it makes. I always try to work positively with the council, but as most other people, I only heard about this consultation by reading it in the Press.

I will continue to represent the majority of my constituents and press the council to try to understand why this consultation has started and to try to ensure all of the research and data the council uses to make its decisions are put into the public domain for residents to see.

What would be very useful would be if every constituent who is concerned about the closures gets in touch with either myself or Martin Vickers. Unfortunately, I am only able to help those who live within the Great Grimsby constituency. Similarly, Martin can only help those who live in Cleethorpes. We will continue to work together, as we do on many things, to fight to ensure any decisions that are made are made openly, and that we protect those services that prove to offer the best start for our children.

I will work with constituents and councillors to do everything I can to prevent the closure of these nursery settings.

This year, our children have been lucky to have weekly sessions with a specialist sports coach. It has been amazing to see the children learn to follow rules and instructions for a variety of games and activities. The children have loved every session!

We are looking at providing holiday clubs at Nursery during the holidays!
We couldn’t run it ourselves as we are on term time only contracts. But we’d be interested in a private providers/childminders etc to show an interest in hiring our provision. Please get in touch. 😊
Please share.
Edit - though if the provider did need additional staff our casual staff could be included in ratios.


Duck, duck, goose!

In our morning group time, we taught the children how to play duck, duck, goose. The children loved the game so much that they started to play themselves. As we watched, more and more children joined the game. They remembered the rules perfectly and everyone waited their turn! ❤️
