Welcome to Monkchester Road
Hello and welcome to the Monkchester Road Nursery School and Family Centre website.
In September 2017 we formed the Newcastle Nursery Schools Federation. The Federation consists of three Nursery Schools – Monkchester Road Nursery School, Ashfield Nursery School and Newburn Manor Nursery School. We have two Co-Headteachers who work across the three Nurseries, Anne Humble and Kay Mills and Assistant Headteachers or a senior teacher at each school. Each Nursery School retains its individual and unique characterisitcs. There is one Governing Body across the Federation with two co-chairs.
Monkchester Road Nursery School and Family Centre is a very inviting and friendly school where every child matters and no one is forgotten.
Mrs Anne Humble (Headteacher)

Monkchester Nursery School and Playgroup will be closed on Monday 19th September 2022. This closure is due to the Bank Holiday granted for the Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

There is an amber warning out from the Met office for increased temperatures from Sunday 17th to Tuesday 19th July.
We are taking additional measures in Nursery and Playgroup to keep children cool including using shade. ventilation, avoiding playing out at midday, wearing sun hats and water breaks where everyone will stop for a drink.
Please ensure your child has sunscreen on and wears light, loose clothing over those two days in nursery and playgroup.
If your child has a sun hat or cap please allow them to wear it for nursery/playgroup. Please put their name inside so we know who it belongs to.
