Nursery admissions:

The nursery is able to accommodate 52 children in full and limited part time places.
Names for places are taken after a child’s second birthday. The deadline for applications is the end of February preceding the September intake.  Children are admitted in the September after their third birthday and must have their fourth birthday between 1st September and 31st August of the year they are admitted to our nursery. The criteria for allocating places are the same as the Local Authority (LA) for reception places.  There is one intake in September each year.  Please see the Nursery Admission Policy on the policies page of the school website.
N.B. A place in nursery does not guarantee a place in the school. 

School admissions (i.e. Reception Class):

The standard intake number for the school is 60.
Children are admitted into the Reception class via a single intake in September.  Children whose fifth birthday falls between September 1st and the end of August commence in September.

All admissions for school are administered by the LA not the school.

It is imperative that parents/carers complete the admission process for a school place and return it to the LA by the date stated.  This form must be completed and returned even if the child is a sibling and even if the child is already in our nursery.
