Admissions

Nursery

Parents may register a child, with the school, when he/she has reached the age of two years. Children are admitted to the Nursery/Foundation Stage 1 after their 3rd birthday, if spaces are available. Admission to the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school (Foundation Stage 2) at the age of 4 years.
If your child is under 3 please bring their birth certificate to the school office where they will be placed onto the nursery waiting list.
When a place becomes available you will be contacted by the school.
Admission arrangements for Foundation Stage 2 are in line with those of the Local Authority.
The Local Authority allocates places on a priority basis:
  1. Children living in the school priority area.
  2. Children living outside the area with brothers and sisters at the school.
  3. Children living outside the priority area if places are available.
