You can apply for a place in our nursery for a September 2020 start if your child’s date of birth falls between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017. The school provides 15 hours of nursery provision per week. This is offered as either 5x3 hour morning sessions or 5x3 hour afternoon sessions. Application forms are available directly from the school. For September 2020 admission, completed application forms should be returned to school by 1st March 2020. On-time applications for nursery places will be allocated by 1st May 2020 according to the following criteria:
If there are fewer applicants than there are places available, everyone who applies will be offered a place.
When there are more applicants than there are places available there has to be a way of deciding which children are offered places. This is done by having admission criteria, also known as over subscription criteria, which are considered in order:
- Children in public care (looked after children) or a child who was previously looked after.
- Children who live in the school’s Priority Admission Area (PAA) who have a brother or sister attending from the same address at the date of admission (the sibling rule).
- Children who live in the school’s PAA.
- Children who live outside the school’s PAA who have a brother or sister attending from the same address at the date of admission (the sibling rule).
- Children who live outside the school’s PAA.
