We do need to see proof of eligibility before we can offer a full time place.

Children attend every day; part week places are not available.

The school office will keep an application list of pupils seeking admission. Inclusion of a child’s name on the list does not constitute a promise of a place. An application form for a nursery place should be completed by parents or carers and submitted to the office at least two terms before you wish your child to start.
