Little Herons Pre-School is the Nursery Class of North Curry Primary School and we take children from age 2 to school age. The pre-school is open to all children, not just those intending to start their school career at North Curry. The pre-school was last inspected by Ofsted in March 2018 and was given a 'Good' grading with elements of 'Outstanding'.

We aim to create a warm and welcoming environment in which all children are able to develop their social and educational skills to the best of their ability. The children have a wide range of equipment to use and we are fortunate enough to have access to a large outdoor playground, playing field and allotments. We also run weekly Forest School activities locally and at the Willows and Wetlands Centre, as well as trips further afield.


Our setting aims to:

  • provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age;
  • work in partnership with patents to help children learn and develop;
  • add to the life and well-being of the local community: and 
  • offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity.



You are regarded as members of our setting who have full participatory rights. These include a right to be:

  • valued and respected;
  • kept informed;
  • consulted;
  • involved; and
  • included at all levels.

Hot School Meals (starting Autumn Term 2020)

Sky College are the provider of hot meals at Little Herons and North Curry Primary School.


We have a three week rolling menu. Parents are asked to place orders via their ParentMail account no later than midnight on the Wednesday of the week before. However, where a school holiday falls, the cut off will be the Wednesday of the last week of term. 

Unfortunately ParentMail will allow orders to be placed after these cut off times, however we will not be able to process these orders and therefore a packed lunch will need to be provided if the cut off is missed. 

If your child does not appear on the lunch register, we will contact you so that a packed lunch can be provided for the rest of the week. Please be assured that we will always provide children with a meal and will contact you if a packed lunch is required.


A copy of Autumn 2020 menu can be viewed above.


Please note: If the sandwich option is ordered, either a ham or cheese sandwich will be provided unless the Preschool is notified differently.


IMPORTANT: Please ensure you notify the Preschool with regards any special dietary requirements.
