Welcome to Bensham Grove Nursery School
I am delighted to welcome you to our website here at Bensham Grove Community Nursery School. I hope our website enables you to share some of our exciting and special times and answer some of the questions you may have.
We are proud to be the only Gateshead Local Authority maintained Nursery School providing 15 hours funded education for 3-4 year olds.
We were delighted to be judged outstanding in all areas in our recent school Ofsted inspection – November 2013. As a school we are staffed with a Headteacher, qualified teachers and teaching assistants with many years experiences. Ofsted graded all teaching as outstanding and found that “staff work very successfully as a team to provide exceptional learning”, “the achievement of all children is outstanding” and “children make rapid progress in all areas of learning.”
