Nursery Admissions

Admission to the Nursery is managed by Acacias and application forms should be returned to the school office. Children are admitted to the Nursery in the September before they are four and places are allocated in the April/May prior to admission. Full details of the admissions criteria can be found in the school prospectus. Please note that children are offered a part time place (5 mornings or 5 afternoons - 15 hours) with the option to top up to full time. A full-time place is free if you are entitled to free school meals. This would be for the duration that you are receiving the qualifying benefits. You can use childcare vouchers, providing a valid 30-hour code (parents are responsible for ensuring this is revalidated when required) or can be paid for. The current chargeable rate is £10 per day to be paid in advance for each half term. This is payable whether a child attends the nursery.
