Foundation Stage

Children are admitted into Nursery as soon after their third birthday as we can but sometimes we are full and need to have a waiting list. The list is kept in the school office; please make sure that you have filled in a form to enrol your child before his/her third birthday. When a place is available a member of the Foundation Stage Team will arrange to visit you and your child at home. A booklet telling you more about the Nursery will be given to you.

From September 2018 we will be offering provision for 2 year olds. If you wish to enquire about this, please speak to the school office or the nursery staff.
