Woolenwick Infant and Nursery School is a Community School opened in 1976 and is located in a residential area in Stevenage. It serves the Old Town and Symonds Green communities.

The school symbol, an acorn, is featured within the mural in the entrance to the school exemplifying the saying, ‘tall oaks from little acorns grow.’ 

The school has undergone a period of alteration and refurbishment resulting in the extension of the Foundation Stage wing, a Sensory room, an Atelier (Art Studio) and Sky Room both with retractable glass roofs completed in 2011.  We are proud of our school building and learning environment.

This booklet is designed to tell you about our Nursery.

At Woolenwick Nursery our aim is to provide a happy, caring, stimulating environment where your child feels secure and can learn at his/her own pace.

We value all our children equally and aim for each child to make maximum progress.

We aim to make the Nursery a warm, friendly, inviting place for parents and carers too, where we work together in partnership - valuing your primary role in knowing, understanding and teaching your child.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Closure of educational settings: information for parents and carers - GOV.UK

Information for parents and carers about the closure of schools and other educational settings following the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).



Emergency Closures

Emergency Closures


As part of the school’s planning for emergencies, parents are reminded that incidents that necessitate school closure include such things as extreme weather and loss of essential electrical, water or heating services. Details of school closures will be texted to parents via Teachers2Parents.

They will also be displayed on the front page of the school website. On days when the weather conditions are poor but the school is open, parents are advised to walk to school.


We hope you appreciate that the decision to close is never made lightly, as the safety and welfare of our children, school staff and parents/carers is of paramount importance, and no one would like to see this compromised.


In the event of closure due to snow, messages will also be on the local radio stations.

Hertfordshire County Council has a notification system for the school and parents to use called the ‘Everbridge’ system. Parents will need to sign up using the following link:
