(Community Relations Equality and Diversity)

Steeple Nursery School has been involved in a cross community project since 1992 with St Joseph's Nursery and Riverside Special School. This involved an extensive programme ranging from visits to each other's school, school trips together, art/ music projects, shared parent training/coffee mornings and staff training together. The relationships with St Joseph's has developed over the year, and we are now involved in an innovative Community Relations project.
