Nursery Admissions

We have places for 68 children during the morning session and 68 in the afternoon. 16 places are available for 2 year old children.

Children may be registered at any point from birth. You will be issued with a receipt of your application and a letter will be sent to you prior to your child starting, to confirm that a place has been allocated. 

For children due to start in September, January or April, a parent’s meeting will be held allowing you to meet the Foundation Stage staff.  You will be notified about ‘Transition Day’ when your child can visit school with you, during a morning or afternoon, according to the place offered. 

A ‘Home visit’ will be offered to you before your child starts school, allowing you a chance to meet your key workers from Foundation Stage, in a familiar setting.  Your child starts on a part time basis but the number of sessions they attend will be gradually increased. More information is available in the Foundation Stage booklet and the Academy’s admission policy.

Please be aware that attending our nursery does not guarantee a place in the Academy’s Foundation Stage 2 class (Reception).  A Local Authority application form must be completed and returned to the Local Authority to request a place in our Academy.

Admissions for 3 & 4 year olds take place in September, January and April pending available places.

Applications for children under 3 years of age maybe registered at any time from birth, funded places will be available for those who meet the eligibility criteria. Please click HERE for the eligibilty and information on free childcare for 2,3 and 4 year olds.

Parents are able to purchase additional sessions where available.
