Nursery & EYFS

Children starting school in September 2018

The deadline for applications to start school in September 2018 was 15th January 2018.    

Please contact your home council for a late application form to apply after this date. Parents will receive notification of place allocation from their Local Authority on Monday 16th April. We do not find out which families will be joining us until the end of May. We will then contact your child's current setting to talk to practitioners about your child to find out more about them which will enable your child to have a smooth transition. 

Parents will be invited to a welcome meeting in July 2018 and the children will visit their new classroom and meet the teachers and support staff. During the meeting you will be given information to help you familiarise your child with the school and you will receive an information pack. You will also be asked to give a preference for a home visit date which will take place in early September. You will also be given a start date. 

Please see the attached Ready for School poster.


Children in the Nursery currently receive either a free entitlement of 15 hours a week or 30 hours for working parents, subject to certain criteria. The school accepts children whose parents wish to access the free 30 hours funding.

Parents generally choose to have either 5 morning sessions or 5 afternoon sessions however there is some flexibility for a full day to be offered whereby parents pay for their child to be looked after during lunch time at the lunch club. Other combinations may also be purchased subject to availability. 

Nursery entitlement can be used to access the following sessions;

Morning Nursery - 8:45am to 11:45am

Afternoon Nursery - 12:30pm to 3:30pm

Lunch club runs from 11:45am to 12:30pm for which there is a charge.
