Marshfield Primary School

Public Consultation

The Council is proposing to establish a nursery class at Marshfield Primary School.

There will be a nursery class big enough for 16 children to go to the school for the morning session, and 16 in the afternoon.


We will build an extension to the school, creating a new classroom. This will allow an existing classroom to be converted to a nursery.


Newport City Council must ensure that there are enough Early Years education or nursery spaces for three and four year olds across the city. The council believes that the most effective way to do this is to have a nursery class in each of our community maintained primary schools.

This is because we think it helps prepare children for school and gives them a better start in education. It will also enable an effective, affordable and accessible model for wrap around childcare in the community, delivered in partnership with the non-maintained sector.

The existing independent Early Years provider at Marshfield school is unable to meet demand for places. The new nursery will be in addition to current provision.
