"We aim to make the years the children spend at Rockwood happy and fulfilling so that, by the time they move onto the next stage, they will be competent, confident learners who take pleasure and pride in their achievements."


‘Rockwood is a wonderful school where every child is known and valued’ (Ofsted 2014)


Welcome to our website and to Rockwood Nursery School

I hope you find this website useful and that it provides the information about our school you are looking for.  If you wish to find out more, please contact us to arrange a visit.  As a Lancashire County Council school, we are inspected under the school inspection framework and follow school policies and guidance, including employing teachers to support the children's learning and development. We were last inspected by Ofsted in October 2014 and were rated as an OUTSTANDING nursery school.

Please have a look through our website and our facebook page to find out why.  Click on our 'News' page to find out what we have been up to recently.

We welcome visits by families interested in joining our school, so do contact us to arrange coming in and seeing what we do.

You can pick up an application form from school or download it here.  Please return completed forms to the school. We hope to see you soon.
