Admissions & Handbook

Our Parent Handbook contains current information about the school. It is aimed at both prospective parents who wish to find out about the school and  parents of children who are already with us as a reference point for key information.

If you wish to apply for a place for your child to join us, Nursery admissions are dealt with directly by us through our School Office whereas school places are managed by the Local Authority. 

Nursery admissions

 

 

We have 39 part-time places for both our morning  (8.40-11.40am) and afternoon (12.35-3.35pm) sessions. If places are available, children can start with us during the term after their third birthday and they are entitled to 15 hours of free Nursery education. Children attend either 5 mornings or 5 afternoons a week to ensure continuity and help prepare them for regular school attendance.

To apply for a place, application forms are available from the School Office or via this link: Nursery Application Form

We encourage parents/carers to arrange a visit to us before applying; contact the Office to arrange this and refer to our Parent Handbook for further details on admissions. Please be aware that attendance of our Nursery is not a criteria that is taken into account when it comes to applying for a school place in Reception.

School admissions

 

 

All admissions, other than Nursery, are the responsibility of Nottingham City Council (see link below). The window for applications for first admission into our Reception classes is between November and January in the academic year prior to their starting school.  Any change of school applications during subsequent years, or applications from families new to the area, are also managed by the City Admissions Department.

We welcome visits at any time from prospective parents who wish to find out more about the school before applying; please contact the Office or Head Teacher to arrange this.

The admissions criteria, in line with Nottingham City Council's policy, can be found in our Parent Handbook (see link above).
