Nursery Admissions

Please be aware that attendance at a school's nursery is not a factor in allocating places when your child is ready to move into the Reception year group. You will need to apply for a Reception place under the Local Authority's Co-ordinated Admission Scheme and places will be allocated according to the Determined Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme 2017-2018.

If your child is currently in Year 2, they will transfer to a junior or primary school in September 2023. You need to apply for a junior or primary school place by 15th January 2023. Click HERE  to find out how.
