Admission arrangements to our Nursery Classes

We are lucky to have a Nursery class at our school. Children can attend for 15 hours or 30 hours a week depending on availability, from the age of 3. The learning is planned by our experienced early years teachers and their highly qualified team of teaching assistants.

Admissions to our nursery take place in September where most of our sessions are filled. If we find that we have spaces in the first term, we can allocate places to children as they become 3.  We have a waiting list for places, and you can add your child’s name to our admissions book by contacting school on 01246 232 034. Visits to school are warmly welcomed and are by appointment.

Please also look at the Derbyshire webpage for further information for 'readiness for school'.
