Admissions

We admit children into our Nursery Class in the term after their third birthday for 15 hours a week. This maybe based on either:

  • 4 morning sessions and 1 additional long session or
  • 4 afternoon sessions and 1 additional long session

Session times are:

  • Morning session – 9.00am to 11.30am
  • Afternoon session – 12.30pm to 3.00pm
  • Long session – 9.00am to 2.00pm (including lunch club)

There are some Flexible spaces in which additional long sessions may be booked for working or studying families subject to availability.  These ‘flexible arrangements’ allow children to access 9:00am until 2:00pm session across 3. There may also be the opportunity to buy additional time for parents who wish to extend their long session from 2.00pm until 3:00pm, the end of the school day, subject to the standard hourly rate of £5.00.

In addition we offer a limited number of 30 hour places for working Parents who are eligible through the Government scheme. Please contact the School if you have applied for a place and think you maybe eligible or already have an eligibility code for 30 hours. these places are always subject to availability.

While we recognise our teaching and learning times need to follow a similar pattern to Primary School days in the best interest of the young children who access the school, we still wish to support families who may have other commitments collecting children from schools in the locality so advise Parents to speak to us about ‘early ‘ collection options.

Please call to arrange an appointment to visit the school if you are interested in applying for a place for your child or simply collect an application form from the school office.

From September 2017:

Dear Parents,

Just to let you know how our opening times will look with the new Government 30 hour offer, at this point we plan our afternoon sessions to start at 12.30pm and end at 3.00pm to prevent staggered collection time and settling children.

If our Governors agree to make the change, we will ensure a story club option will be available until 3.30pm to stop collection clashes with local Primary Schools. This will be charged at £2.50 per day.

We will confirm times with you as soon as we have confirmation of the 30 hours Government Scheme.

Places for September 2017 will be offered out very soon so please get in touch if you think you are eligible for the 30 hours as soon as possible.

Thank you
