Our Nursery accepts children on the term after their 3rd birthday. We currently offer both 15 hours and 30 hours of childcare. To find out if you are eligible, please contact the school office.
You can apply for a place at our Nursery before your child turns 3, it’s never too early! Applications can be made at any time. Please complete admission form and return to our school office to apply for our nursery.
Applications can be made at any time. We keep a waiting list with places prioritised in the following order:
- Looked After Children
- Siblings of children already attending the school
Induction to Nursery
We have a structured induction programme for our Nursery children a staggered start with a two week settling in period, careful planning of resources and gradual introduction of the class routines. We understand that every child is different and we work carefully with parents and carers to ensure that your child has the best start to their time in Nursery and can settle into the routines of Nursery.
Transition to Reception
In the Summer term, we have a structured transition programme for the children introducing them to the Reception teachers and their new classrooms, staff, as well as involvement in whole school initiatives and assemblies.
Apply for Tax-Free Childcare
You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year).
If you get Tax-Free Childcare, you’ll set up an online childcare account for your child. For every £8 you pay into this account, the government will pay in £2 to use to pay your provider.
You can get Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as 30 hours free childcare if you’re eligible for both.
