We accept applications for our Nursery registration list at 2 years old. Children will be admitted into nursery soon after their third birthday.
If you wish to add your child’s name to our Nursery list, please come in to school on Tuesday morning between 9.30 – 10.30.a.m. Please bring proof of address and date of birth to complete the registration process.
We offer three hour sessions either: Mornings 8.45am-11.45am or Afternoons 12.30-3.30pm.
Your child may be eligible for a full time free Nursery place, please check this criteria:
A place in our nursery does not guarantee a place in our Reception class.
The Admission Process for children starting Nursery in September
Parents will receive a phone call to confirm they still want the place by the end of April.
This is followed up by letter confirming the offer and asking for confirmation in writing of parents wishing to take the place.
The Induction Process
Parents and children are invited to an open day where the children and parents meet the staff in the summer term.
Then children and parents are invited to a number of stay and play sessions where the child, staff and parents get to know each other in the summer term.
This is followed up by a home visit, in September, where two members of staff visit the child and parent at home. This enables individual and confidential conversations. At this point, we will take a copy of proof of child’s DOB and address. This information is held in school for one year and then deleted.
We also need to be given an emergency contact; if parents are unable to supply us with an emergency contact then the Local Authority would be the emergency contact for the school.
At this point parents are given a start date and a settling in period. During this settling in time, parents are asked to stay with their child for the first few days, depending on the level of support they need.
Offer of a place at other times of the year
We review our waiting lists regularly and if children on our list are due to start reception in the following September and a place has become available we will offer a place. We cannot offer the full induction process during the year but we always conduct a home visit.
If there are still spaces and we have children on our waiting list, we do occasionally offer a place with priority given to older children whose birthday falls between September-December. This means that the child would have 5 terms at nursery.
