We were delighted to welcome Margaret Beckett MP to our Nursery

Lord Street Nursery School were very honoured to receive a visit from the Rt Hon. Dame Margaret Beckett MP on Friday 25th January. Deirdre Malley, Headteacher presented petitions on behalf of Lord Street Nursery Schools’ and Harrington Nursery Schools’ parents and local communities. Deirdre commented “This is a common sense decision to extend our funding, as early education plays a critical foundation to lifelong learning.” Margaret Beckett MP will present these petitions to Parliament on 5th February. The petitions ask Parliament to confirm that they will continue to commit to maintaining level funding for maintained nursery schools after 2020. Maintained nursery schools (local authority run schools for 2, 3 and 4-year-olds offer outstanding education). The whole early years sector benefits from the expertise of maintained nursery schools acting as catalysts to raise standards in their locality through supporting schools and early years settings to work together to improve their quality. Lord Street Community Nursery is a standalone school that has been providing education, help and support to children and their families for over 70 years and hopes that this petition along with cross party support within Parliament will secure the future of maintained nursery schools for the generations to come.
