Welcome from the Head
Our Acting Headteacher – Jenny McDonald
The Knowle West Nursery School site has been at the heart of the Knowle West community for over 70 years. The school has welcomed generations of families and places a high value on a warm family-centred ethos.
We are one of twelve local authority-maintained nursery schools in Bristol and we offer high quality early years provision in a beautiful learning environment.
Our main site on Leinster Avenue was redeveloped in 2017 to offer more space and a bespoke provision which OFSTED currently rate as ‘good’ with ‘outstanding’ features. Our smaller sister site at the Inns Court Family and Community Centre has been open since 2013 and is currently rated as an ‘outstanding’, ‘exceptional’ early years provision by OFSTED.
One of our core values is ‘we all matter – we all belong’ which promotes our inclusive culture and is a key element of our high-quality provision where each child is valued, nurtured and gets what they need to thrive and succeed.
I am proud to be the acting headteacher of such a wonderful school and have been part of the team since 2011. I cannot do this job alone and I am supported by an amazing, dedicated and highly qualified staff team who are passionate about giving children the best start in life to learn and grow.
We all look forward to welcoming you and your child to the Knowle West nursery school family.
