Nursery Admissions

Children are usually admitted to our nursery the September following their 3rd birthday, depending on places available.  We offer both full and part time provision.

Full time places (9am to 3pm) are available to families who qualify for 30 hours free childcare offered by the government. The website address below gives further details

Part time places are open to all families: our morning sessions run from 8.45am to 11.45am, and our afternoon sessions from 12.15pm to 3.15pm.

Arrangements for the 2020-21 Academic Year

We are offering 16 full time places with a mixture of morning and afternoon places, totalling no more than 45 full time equivalent (FTE) children.  This is a temporary increase to our published admission number (PAN) to allow us to evaluate the impact of extending our provision.

Arrangements for the 2021-22 Academic Year

We will be trialling an increase to our full time provision in response to requests from parents in our local community. We will be offering up to 24 full time places with a mixture of morning and afternoon places, totalling no more than 45 FTE children. This is a temporary increase to our published admission number (PAN) to allow us to evaluate the impact of an alternative extended provision.
