Nursery Admissions

If you are enquiring about a place in our Nursery then please contact school on 01642 471298 where a member of staff will take down you and your child’s details. Alternatively you can complete the Nursery admissions form at the school office.

You can put your child’s name down at any point before they are 3 years old and we will put their name down on our waiting list. 

Children are admitted as soon as a place is available after their third birthday. This is to ensure they benefit from having as much Nursery education as possible.

There is a waiting list of children from both in and out of area. Places are offered on an age basis using the LEA recommended criteria: –

  • The child lives in the catchment area of the school
  • The child has siblings already in the school
  • The child lives out of area

Before your child turns 3 years old our Nursery will be in contact to arrange a pre start visit.
