Choosing the very first school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We will be delighted to help you by explaining the admissions procedure and giving you a flavour of the whole school at work. Please contact Mrs Baker in the school office, who will make an appointment for you to visit us. We also welcome families of children moving from other schools due to a house move at any time within the school year.

NURSERY ADMISSIONS 2022
During the school year we take children into our nursery in September, January and April. The criteria is that they are 3 years old in the term before they begin. So a child who is 3 in February for instance can start in April.
Nursery aged children are entitled to at least 15 hours a week in school. We offer 30 free hours a week in the nursery for parents who are eligible. We are also pleased to offer additional sessions above the 15 hours at £15 per session for those families not eligible for 30 hours. This is at the school's discretion according to ratios of children and staff and we ask for payment a term in advance so that staffing can be organised.
