Nursery places are allocated from the nursery waiting list. Please refer to the nursery admissions policy for detailed information about how nursery places are offered; there is a priority ranking for places.
Nursery places are offered via email using the contact details provided for children when their details are placed on the nursery waiting list.
When confirmation of a nursery place is offered, parents/carers are asked to confirm their first choice attendance pattern. The allocation of a nursery place is a process which involves direct email communication between parents/carers and the leader for Early Years - Sarah Alderson. Changes to attendance patterns can be requested and are based on availability and the criteria detailed in the nursery admissions policy.
Please be aware that the acceptance of a nursery place has no bearing on the allocation of a school place by the local authority.
Transition into Nursery
For children starting nursery in September, visits to nursery are being merged with the start of attendance patterns parents have chosen for their child. Nursery staff will support children with settling into the routine of nursery. Children can be brought into the nursery outdoor classroom by their parent, or carer. Shorter sessions can be booked for children as they begin to attend nursery, to support their transition.
We treat all children as individuals and work closely with families to ensure transition into nursery is as smooth a process as possible.
If you would like more information about transition into nursery, or have any specific questions, please email Sarah Alderson: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone the school office on 0113 257 4129.
