Our nursery is currently full so we have no places available to allocate in April 2024. Please contact the office for information and if you would like to be placed on our waiting list.
We are now accepting applications for September 2024 please come to the office for an application pack. The closing date for application is Monday 18th March 2024.
As part of the school there is nursery provision for children aged 2-4.
The Nursery room is filled with exciting and fun learning opportunities and has an outdoor area in which the children can explore nature and experience their learning in an outdoor setting. The staff are fully qualified and experienced Nursery practitioners and are committed to providing our Nursery children with the best care and learning opportunities they can.
Learning takes place through child-initiated play with a huge variety of resources and equipment to help them to develop their skills and knowledge of the world, through the framework of the Early Years curriculum.
We offer morning and afternoon sessions, term time only, to funded 2 - 4 year olds. Sessions will run from 8:40am to 11:40am and from 12:20 noon to 3:20pm. Children attending 30 hours per week will be asked to pay £3.40 (subject to change as this is aligned with the government funding amount) per day to cover the 40 minute lunchtime.
The school admits children three times during the year (for as long as places are available). Funding and entitlement are based on a three-term year, with children starting in September, January and April.
Currently all 3 and 4 year-olds are entitled to 15 hours of free early education each week and some are eligible for an additional 15 hours (up to 30 hours per week). Some 2 year olds are also entitled to up to 15 hours of free early education each week. Entitlement starts from the term after the child’s 2nd or 3rd birthday:
Parents need to check whether they are eligible and how many hours they are entitled to via the online Eligibility Checker at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk If eligible an 11-digit code/ reference number will be generated and should be given to the school in the half term before the child starts. Alternatively, parents are able to purchase additional hours.
If parents/ carers require hours outside of the school day, they can access our breakfast club and after school club sessions. Sessions can be purchased in a pattern to suit parents’/carers’ needs, subject to availability.

We have one intake in September, although if there is availability a child can join mid-year. The school manages admissions for nursery places. Please contact the school office for an application form.
