Admissions

 

If you would like your child to attend either the Nursery or the main school please use the documents below to help guide you:

 

Nursery

Our school has a small Nursery of 18 full-time children attending for 30 hours a week. Parents who are not eligible for the full 30 hours of DFE funded care and might only receive 15 hours a week are able to 'top-up' their children's Nursery attendance with child care vouchers or through a payment arrangement.  For more information, please contact the school office.

Please read the Nursery Admissions Criteria as outlined in the policy below:
