Generally children are admitted into the school Nursery to take up either a 15 or 30 hour funded place at the beginning of the term after their third birthday. In some circumstances children may be allowed to take up a place during the term of their third birthday if there are spaces available and a parent is entitled to Talking Two's funding.
Attendance in our Nursery does not automatically confirm a place in our school as the Local Authority decides our admissions. Parents need to apply to the Local Authority for a school place.
Parents are welcome to book an appointment prior to considering a place to view our school. Appointments can be made on a Friday morning from 31 September each year.
The Local Authority will confirm a child's place in one of our Reception classes in the academic year before the child is due to start school. The school has an admissions limit of 70 pupils with a Local Authority agreed cap of 60 per year group.
Once places have been confirmed with the LA parents will receive a letter from the school requesting them to:
- confirm that they wish to take the school place
- book a home visit with the Reception teacher
- attend some induction visits in the summer term before starting school
Children are admitted into school in a single intake in September during the academic year they will have their 5th birthday. However parents may wish to defer entry into school until their child turns 5 years old. More information can be found in the link above.
