About Us‎ > ‎


Three year old children are eligible for admission to Nursery, although the date of admission is dependent upon places available in our 30 place setting.  Priority is given to the children who have siblings already attending the Academy and are living within the school’s admission zone.

The Nursery team can facilitate a limited number of flexible places for children attending our Nursery setting.  Generally pupils will attend either on a morning or for an afternoon session for 3 hours.  However, to support families, a child’s entitlement can be grouped together to enable either all day participation for Monday, Tuesday to lunchtime on Wednesday or Wednesday afternoon and all day for Thursday and Friday.  For more details about the criteria for selection and to discuss these arrangements, please speak to Mrs Crabbe, Vice Principal.


Children begin full time education in the September before their 5th birthday. When children enter full time education in Reception class, we find a smooth transition from Nursery to Reception is essential to ease your child into school life.  To support the children beginning our academy we operate a staggered intake over the first week.

1st day

2nd day

Morning only

3rd day

4th day

During the summer term, to support transition and to put both pupils and parents’ minds at ease, parents will be invited to experience lunchtime with their child (the date will be shared nearer the time).  The cost of the meal will be £1.90 for children’s meals and £3.10 for an adult meal.  Parents and carers intending to have a school meal with their child will need to inform school at the ‘new starters’ meeting held in the Summer term prior to their child starting in Reception class.


The planned admission number for 2017-2018 is 30.

Children may be registered for admission at any time, but preferably before they are three. 


The Academies Enterprise Trust is the Admissions Authority for the academy.

Parents are invited to submit their preferences for the Primary School they would like their child to attend via Admissions service, following the Admissions Policy. Preference forms will be sent to the child's home address in January 2017. These forms need to be completed and returned by the deadline given. These forms are for the 2016-17 intake.


You must apply for a reception place even if your child already attends the schools nursery.  Please note that a place in a school nursery does not guarantee a place in the Primary School.
