Admissions

Parents and carers considering applying to the school can arrange a visit to view the school. If you would like to do this, please contact the school office who will arrange a time for you to be shown around during the normal school day.

Children become eligible for Nursery the term after their third birthday if there are spaces available. Places in Nursery are allocated using the same admissions priority as school. Where there are fewer applicants than places available all children will be offered a place.  Where there are more applicants the following criteria applies.

1.    Looked after or previously looked after children.

2.    Medical or social circumstances

3.    Children with siblings already attending at the time of admission.

4.    Religious reasons

5.    Children who live closest to the school.

Applications for nursery are available from the school office.  Full details of these admission criteria can be found in our admission policy below. Allocation of a place in Nursery does not automatically guarantee a full-time place in school.
