King's Hall School, Kingston Road, Taunton TA2 8AA
King’s Hall Pelican Nursery is the first step of a child’s learning journey at King’s Hall and the first rung of the Pre-Prep ladder.
The curriculum is tailored to meet the developmental needs of each individual child following the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
The prime aim is to instil a love of learning into every child whatever their starting points or capabilities by making the very most of their natural curiosity.
King’s Hall Pelican Nursery believe that a nursery education is very much about what they can ‘bring out’ of a child rather than what they can ‘put in’. This is achieved through the highly qualified staff making the most of the stunning setting and excellent facilities.
The nursery has two rooms, known as Pelican Nursery Room 1, which welcomes children from the age of two, and Pelican Nursery Room 2.
Pelican Nursery Room 2 welcomes children from the age of three and where they stay until they make the transition to their Reception year. It is positioned next to the Reception classrooms with whom they share a secure, purpose-built outside area. The ratio for this age group is 1:8 but is often less than this due to the flexibility of the Early Years staff.

a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.
The Average Rating of 4.917 for King's Hall Pelican Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917
b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'
The 5 points available are broken down as follows:
4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.
1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.
If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.
The 1.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for King's Hall Pelican Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 3 positive Reviews (15 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 3 Target = 0.333 , then divided by 2 = 0.167

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Polly L (Mother of Child) on Monday 26 September 2016. Relates to September 2016.
My daughter started Nursery 1 at the beginning of September 2016, aged 2 years and 9 months.
Given this was her first time in a nursery setting, I was understandably apprehensive, however, my nerves very quickly eased when I arrived. The staff were so welcoming and reassuring. They are incredibly accommodating to the child's and the parent's needs. My daughter quickly settled, she was given the attention and interaction that she needed to feel calm and safe in a strange/new environment. The staff in Nursery 1 are a fantastic team, they are passionate about the children and work hard to keep the family/carers involved in the child's education there at the nursery.
They make every effort to get to know all aspects of the child's life in order to keep continuity between home and nursery.
We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to send our child to a fantastic nursery where we know she will be encouraged to develop and learn in a comfortable, safe and understanding environment.
