Admissions

Nursery Places

Admissions to our Nursery are organised directly by the school. 

If you would like to express an interest in our school nursery 6 months or more before the date of admission, please complete our Nursery Expression of Interest Form. If we are able to offer your child a place in our school nursery, we will contact you at least 8 weeks before they are due to start. At this point, we will ask you to complete a full Nursery Application Form.

Expressions of interest can be submitted at any time after the birth of your child. 

Children will usually be offered five morning sessions in the term following their third birthday. Where possible, we may be able to admit your child as soon as they turn three. Please see our Nursery Admissions Policy for more information. This policy outlines our arrangements for the allocation of places, including the criteria for admissions should the demand for places exceed the number of places available. The policy is available on our school website or you can contact our school office directly.

30 hours FREE childcare Scheme
 
Every nursery child is entitled to 15 hours of education per week and we offer this in our morning nursery sessions (9am - 12 noon, Monday to Friday).
 
We also offer places for children to attend our school nursery for 30 hours per week.  This is offered as full day sessions (9am - 3pm, Monday - Friday).  These places can be funded by the Government, subject to some eligibility criteria for parents.
 
Please check your eligibility for the free entitlement using the document below.
 
 
 
We also offer afternoon sessions to all families on a paid basis. Please ask for more details at our school office.

Reception to Year 4 Places

Admissions to our Reception Class, and to the rest of the school, are co-ordinated by Northumberland County Council.  Details of how to apply and useful information on admissions can be found on the County Council’s website.

The County’s School Admissions Team can also be contacted by telephone: 01670 534162 or email: schooladmissions@northumberland.gov.uk

Please note: the allocation of a Nursery place does not guarantee a Reception place and parents must still follow the County Council’s admissions process for Reception, even if their child already attends our Nursery.
