Applications for admission to the Nursery can be made directly to the school any time after a child’s second birthday. Children are admitted to the Nursery at the start of the term following their third birthday, subject to the discretion of the Head Teacher.Free Nursery Eligibility and Top-up Fees
Each September, the academy enrols new children who are 3 years old into our Nursery. If there are places available still in January then a further enrolment takes place.
We offer 30 hour full time-places from 8.50am until 3.00pm, Monday to Friday, during term time. We also offer 15 hour part-time places in the morning from 8.50am to 11.50am.
All 3-4 year old children are entitled to 15 hour free nursery education, but a further 15 additional hours are free to parents who meet the criteria. For a child to access five full time days over the week, we ask that parents spend their full childcare allocation with us.
Further information about eligibility for childcare and a childcare calculator can be found here.
Parents who are not eligible for the 30 hour code and require a full time place, will have to pay for the additional 15 hours. The charge is £120 per week, which will be billed termly and calculated on the number of days the nursery is open each term.
The school office will require a valid eligibility code, or a deposit of £100 upon acceptance of a full time place. Any deposits will be deducted from the last month’s fee.
Full time children usually have a school meal which is currently £2.20 per day and must be paid at least weekly (£11) in advance.
