Children can start in our Nursery class the term after their third birthday and at any point during the school year. Our Nursery classroom is staffed by a full time qualified teacher as well as two additional adults who hold level three qualifications and with a maximum of 25 children, your child will recieve a high level of adult support. We are able to provide a school lunch for our full time and part time morning children and our Nursery children love the chance to spend time with the older children in Reception and with the whole school at different events.
Our Nursery opening hours are 9am - 3:15pm and we offer a number of options for Nursery places:
Option A - 30 hours entitlement
A full time place where parents are working and entitled to 30 hours free childcare.
Option B - Top up contibutions from the parents
A full time place where the family pays a top up contribution of £50 per week to cover the costs of hours in addition to the 15 hours entitlement that every child gets.
Option C - Free full time place for FSM or PPG children
A full time place for children whose families are entitled to free school meals of for whom the school will recieve the early years pupil premium.
Option D - Part time places
A morning (9 - 12) or afternoon (12:15 - 15:15) part time place for 15 hours per week.
Please get in touch with our school office if you have any questions about which option works best for your family.
The school will always work with parents to find the best solution to make sure your child can join our Nursery class.
This could include giving a free full time place to a child who:
- Is NOT entitled to 30 hours free child care because both parents work.
- Is NOT entitled to Free School Meals or the Early Years Pupil Premium
We want to provide free spaces to those familes facing difficulties or have a level of need but who might not meet the criteria for Option A or Option C above. Come and speak to us before you apply for your child's place and we will support your family in any way we can.
If relevant to your application, the school's religious refrence form needs to be completed at your place of worship and will be used to prioritise applications when the Nursery is full. You can download this form below.
Applications for a space in our school nursery can be made at any time using our Nursery application form below.
There are places still available for our 2017-18 Nursery class and your child can be admitted at any point during the academic year.
Please do not hesitate to contact our school office if you need any support with applying for a nursery place.
