Code of Conduct

There is a Code of Conduct, to which all staff are required to work. As a staff team we are extremely experienced, and we are actively involved in the training and professional development of students and of other staff in the County. 


Staff Training Day

Staff are very well inducted and supervised and have regular appraisals. We close on 3 days per year for staff training. 

Our last training day on 22nd October 2021 was our first joint training day as  'Foundations for Children Nursery Schools Federation.' The Federation comprises of Camrose Early Years Centre, Parklands Nursery School, both in Northampton,  and  Croyland and Highfield Nursery Schools in Wellingborough.  The training day was focused on the Early Years Reforms for Education and Care of children aged 0-5 years, published in Sept 21. 

These professional development opportunities allow the teachers and practitioners working with your children to be up to date with the most effective teaching and learning strategies that can help all children achieve their full potential. As you can see from the photos there were many opportunities to share and discuss best practice across the four Nursery Schools. 

Please see some pics from the day below.
