We offer a mix of 15 hour and 30 hour sessions to best meet the needs of our local community. A link to our Nursery policy is provided below. The policy sets out the different offers we provide, details of extra wrap-around child care sessions and our Nursery admissions criteria. 




Nursery Application and Admissions September 2018 


Applications for our Nursery for September 2018 intake closed on 5th March 2018. Families who applied for a place before the application closure deadline will be advised of their offer by 19th March. These offers must be accepted by Monday 16th April to avoid Nursery places being offered to families on the waiting list.


Late applications - if you missed the Nursery application dead line you can still apply for a Nursery place by contacting the school office for an application form. Once completed and returned, your request will be placed on the waiting list. You will be advised of your success of a Nursery place after the 16th April, once we have accommodated requests from families who applied on time.





Extended hours provision

From September 2017 offered a mix of some extended hours within the nursery setting. We will be able to accept some children on the 30 hours funded childcare scheme, should they be eligible, and additionally will be able to offer the opportunity for parents and carers to buy in additional hours in the afternoon and for lunch club. These hours must be booked half-termly in advance, and paid for in advance. We are able to offer lunch club from 11.30-12.10 daily  and afternoon sessions from 12.10-3.10. Please contact the school for more details. Places are limited for both 30 hours and extended sessions, we will add you to a waiting list should all places become full.
