Admission Arrangements

Generally children are admitted into 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. Please follow the link below.

Parents are welcome to book an appointment prior to considering a place to view our school and nursery. 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.
