Welcome to our school!

Hello and welcome to

Lane Head Nursery School

We understand that choosing the best start for your child’s educational journey is the most important decision you will make.

At Lane Head Nursery School, we provide an inspiring and enabling
environment.  All children are encouraged to learn actively through planned, purposeful and spontaneous play every day.

We are passionate about providing a range of enriching opportunities to inspire our youngest children’s love of learning.

Our team of dedicated staff understand that some children have a strong preference for being either indoors or outside. Our free flow learning environment and ‘Can Do’ approach enables Every child to discover and work this Way.

Everyone is encouraged to develop at their own pace. We can promise that each day your child will learn something new in our highly stimulating, imaginative and creative environment.

By listening to and carefully observing your children at play, we deliver a planned Early Years curriculum that guarantees every day will be filled with fun whilst making lasting friendships!

Our aim is simple…

Every Day, In Every Way, Everyone Matters...

School Pantry
We know times are tough right now and now and again we all need a helping hand.

Short Heath Federation, in conjunction with MCKS Charity, is proud to offer our own small-scale school pantry to support families in need. We can offer a couple of bags of supplies to last a couple of days.

If you need support from our pantry then please contact your school office, Ms Dean at Rosedale or Miss Harris at Short Heath. All requests will be treated sensitively and confidentially.

Please note, we cannot provide perishable items due to storage.   

We also welcome donations too - these can be dropped off at the collection point in the reception area at Short Heath Junior School.
Thank you.


Please keep up to date by looking at the information for parents - letters home page.  Thank you.
