Admissions Policy

Children are admitted to the Nursery, on a part-time basis, as soon after their third birthday as possible. The school follows the admissions policy set out by the Local Education Authority.

Priority is given to

  • Looked after children in the local authority
  • Children who are permanently resident in the admission zone defined for the school
  • Children not living in the admission zone who have elder brothers or sisters attending the school
  • Children not living in the admission zone who have exceptional social/or medical reasons for attending a particular school, professionally supported by an independent third party and sustained by the local authority's professional advisors
  • Children living closest to the school.

There is a single intake for Reception children in September each year. The allocation of Reception places is managed by the local authority. A total of 45 places have been allocated to our school.

In the case of over subscription the following criteria: are followed in priority order:

  • Children who are cared for by the local authority
