'widest possible range of learning'
Children are accepted into the nursery class from the age of three years, as vacancies arise. There are two half day sessions, from 9.00 – 12.00 noon and from 12.30 - 3.30pm. There are a proportion of full time places, which are allocated, on the basis of age, to the eighteen eldest children. Parents should bring and collect their children promptly. The school cannot be responsible for children before the opening time of each session. Children should be dressed in school uniform and trainers/plimsolls they can manage themselves. Reception children wear the full school uniform.
Children in Nursery and Reception follow a wide programme of activities in planned by the Teacher and support staff and receive the widest possible range of learning experiences and opportunities for exploration.
There is no automatic entry to the school for a place in the Reception class from the Nursery. A separate application (see below) must be made for a place in the school.
