Nursery Admissions

We currently have places for 114 children, 65 during the morning session and 65 in the afternoon. 16 places are available for fulltime attendance.

Children may be registered from the beginning of the academic year in which they turn two. You will be issued with a receipt.  A letter will be sent to you in May, prior to your child starting in September, to confirm that a place has been allocated. 

A parent’s meeting will be held at the end of June allowing you to meet the FS1 staff.  You will be notified about ‘Transition Day’ when your child can visit school with you, during a morning or afternoon, according to the place offered. 

A ‘Home visit’ will be offered to you in early September, before your child starts school, allowing you a chance to meet your key workers from FS1, in a familiar setting.  Your child starts on a part time basis but the number of sessions they attend will be gradually increased. More information is available in the FS1 booklet and the academy’s admission policy.

Please be aware that attending FS1 does not guarantee a place in the academy’s Reception class.  A Local Authority application form must be completed and returned to the Local Authority to request a place in Reception.
