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.
Please have a look around our website. If you would like any further information, or would like to visit us as a prospective parent, please telephone on 0191 2654579.
Mrs Anne Humble (Headteacher)
Our Nursery School and Playgroup will close for Easter at 12 Noon on Thursday 1st April 2021. We will re-open again on Tuesday 20th April 2021. We wish you all a happy Easter and hope you enjoy the holidays.
Accelerated Campaign to vaccinate all 18+
Please note there is a NHS Pfizer vaccine clinic on Friday 9 July 2021 - 1st and 2nd doses are available (if at least 8 weeks since their 1st dose) – no appointment needed, any time between 9-1pm at the Vertu Motor Arena (Newcastle Eagles).
Public Health can support with covering taxis for anyone attending without transport in place via the Welfare and Wellbeing Team. This support may be accessed via this online form or by calling 0800 170 7001 (this is a free phone number).
We are urgently supporting the NHS with this specifically to ensure vaccines are not wasted as they expire at the end this week. There are hundreds of vaccines available on the day.
