1/ Nursery Admissions

We also have a highly successful Nursery which admits children in either morning or afternoon or full time places.

Your options are:


Morning places    - 08.30 to 11.30 - 15 hours per week funded by the local authority

Afternoon places - 12.30  to 15.30 - 15 hours per week funded by the local authority

Full day places     - 08.30 to 15.30 - 15 hours per week funded by the local authority, with the further 20 hours (including hot                                                                       lunch provision) chargeable to parents at £110 per week.


Please note we do not currently offer the 30 hours provision. However you are still welcome to take full days with us. You can choose between 1 to 5 full days if you wish. Each full day session is charged at £22 which covers the additional 4 hours which are not funded by the local authority. This additional cost is in line with the charging made by other local schools, inclusive of the 30 hours. We accept any and all childcare vouchers and encourage families paying for additional hours to use these.

You may find this calculator (click here) useful for working out what support you may be able to get with your childcare costs.


Our breakfast club is open to nursery children from 7.45am until 8.30am. Full time nursery children are also able to access on site wrap around care from 3.30pm to 6pm. Further information can be found HERE.


If you would like to apply for a Nursery place, please fill in the form below and return it to the school, along with a copy of your child’s birth certificate.


For further information including the admissions criteria please click here for the Achieving for Children Early Years admissions information. We adhere to the admissions criteria listed within the brochure but do please note that the link refers to an admissions deadline, however, we continue to admit children to our nursery as long as we have spaces and they have reached their 3rd birthday.
