Nursery Admissions

We currently offer a mix of full and part time places in our nursery. Our main intake is during September and these places are offered to children who have had their 3rd birthday before 31 August that year.   If we have any unallocated spaces, these will be offered to any children still waiting for a nursery space with a view to starting the following term as long as they are 3 years old.  

We currently offer children their 15 hours entitlement - Monday to Friday from 8.55am to 11.55am.  

We offer children their 30 hours entitlement through the following sessions - Monday to Friday from 8.55am to 2.55pm.  Children who attend for 30 hours need to bring a packed lunch with them.   

Please click on the link below to download a nursery application form. Please complete the form and return it to the school office along with your child’s birth certificate, a recent utility bill and a recent council tax statement.

We still have places available for this year, so please contact the school office if you would like any further information or a tour of our Nursery.
