The Nursery is a creative and inspirational teacher led Nursery, offering a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment to play and explore. As an exploratory Nursery, adults prioritise playing alongside the children, supporting them to work collaboratively and communicate their ideas. At our previous inspection the Nursery was recognised as ‘outstanding’ and since then it has been getting better and better!
Nursery sessions are 8.45am – 12.00pm or 12.30pm – 3.00pm or 8.45 -3.00pm with a packed lunch at midday which is provided from home. Some children may be entitled to a free school lunch, please speak to the Infant School school office about this.
Please contact the Infant School office for an application form and visit the Nursery page on the website Admissions>Starting at the Nursery for a virtual tour during the pandemic ~ we look forward to meeting you when it is safe to do so.

The School Admissions Code of Practice recommends that priority be given to ‘Looked After’ children when setting over subscription criteria. In light of this, the following over subscription criteria are proposed, for determining the allocation of places where there are more applications than places available:
- Children who are in Public Care (Looked After Children)
- Children living in the school’s designated area with a sibling who will be attending the school at the time of admission.
- Other children living in the school’s designated area.
- Children living outside the school’s designated area, but with a sibling who will be attending the school at the time of admission
- Other children living outside the school’s designated area
If it is necessary to distinguish between children in a particular category, priority will be determined by the age of the child i.e. the earlier the date of birth, the higher the priority.
Priority may be given (with approval of Senior Officers) to the admission of a child for whom an exceptional medical or social justification is demonstrated.
