Do you want a Nursery place for your child?

Apply for a Nursery place at the office. Please bring your child’s birth certificate (full one if possible) for us to photocopy. Your child will then be added to the waiting list. Places can be allocated from their 3rd birthday depending on availability. Part time (15 hours) and full time places are available. Full time (30 hours) can be used with the government funding or you can also 'top up' by paying for the additional 15 hours yourself.  For more information, please call the school office who will be happy to help you.

Once the application is registered, places will be looked at and offers will be made. If the year group you need is full, your child will be put on the waiting list for the next available place. (Please refer to the admission policy for how the waiting list works).

The school follows the Local Authority Admission Arrangements and these are reviewed annually. Places at the school are in demand in most year groups and proof of residence in the catchment area may be requested in order for admission to be granted.

We really hope that you choose us for your child's school or Nursery place.
