Our Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) Unit offers places for 3 and 4 year olds. The earliest a child can start is the term after their 3rd birthday. Places in the Foundation Stage 1 Unit will be allocated as they become available. The school offers both the 30 hours extended funding and the universal 15 hours of free education. Parents/carers may choose mornings, afternoons or full days and pay for top-up sessions and lunch times, subject to places being available on a first come, first served basis. The date the application was received and the age of the child will be taken into consideration when places are allocated. All places are allocated at the discretion of the Head Teacher.

If you are requesting full days there is an obligation to collect your child at the end of the morning session and return him/her at the beginning of the afternoon session. If you wish your child to stay for the full day, including lunch time, then there will be an additional cost of £3.00 per day.
We also offer lunch time places as an ‘add on’. This can be at the end of a morning session or at the beginning of an afternoon session. A parent/carer requesting lunch time as an ‘add on’ before the afternoon session must ensure their child is at school by 11:30am. A parent/carer requesting lunch time as an ‘add on’ after a morning session must collect their child no later than 12:30pm. Your child is required to bring a packed lunch if they are staying at lunch time. All places are subject to availability and are on a first come, first served basis.
To place your child's name on our Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) list please contact the School Office or download an application form from the link at the bottom of the page and return to the school.
The term before your child is due to start in our setting we will contact you to offer your son or daughter a place. We will then arrange for you to visit our Foundation Stage 1 Unit, along with your son or daughter for a pre-admission meeting. This will give you the opportunity to meet the staff and ask any questions and alleviate any worries you may have.
Should you require any further information on either the 15 hour free nursery entitlement or our top up session prices please contact the School Office.
