Before Starting School
An Application Form (see below) should be completed and returned to the school office with a birth certificate. Parents are encouraged to register for a place as early as possible, as date of registration may be a factor in offering places should the Nursery be oversubscribed. If you require assistance to complete the registration form in English please ask any member of staff.
Please click the link below to download the registration form, complete and return it to the school via email or post.
Visits to the school
You are welcome to visit the school before filling out an application form. You may call in during opening hours, or, to be sure of individual attention, an appointment can be made through the School Administrator.
Offer of a Place
In the term before starting you will receive a written offer of a place and an invitation to attend a new parents' meeting with other new families.
New Parents Meeting
At this meeting the Headteacher will provide you with information about the school and answer any questions you may have. You will also be given a date and time for an optional home visit.
These are arranged for the first day(s) of each term. The visit gives you the chance to talk to your child’s key people about their development, their personal likes and dislikes and it gives staff the chance to meet the child in their own environment. We would recommend that you take up the option of a home visit as we feel it fosters our relationship with the child and the parents and helps us to build up a holistic picture of every child.
New Entrants Day
Children will be offered a shortened session to attend with their parents(s) at the start of the term they join the school. This enables the children to become familiar with the environment guided by their parent(s).
The First Day
New children do not all start on the same day and you will be given a date for your child at the new parent meeting. Children take different lengths of time to settle into school. Please arrange to stay with your child on the first day. Arrangements for following days will be agreed with you on the first day, however, you are always welcome to spend time in the school.
There is no charge for the 15 hours of education your child receives at the school. There will be occasional off-site visits necessitating a voluntary contribution, however, if parents are unable to contribute no child will be excluded.
