Admissions to the Nursery Class - Acorns
The Academy operates its own admissions for the nursery class. From September 2020 there will be 26 full time spaces available. These will be split into 30 hour and 15 hour spaces as needed (as per the criteria specified in the nursery admissions document on this page).
Children who attend nursery for 30 hours a week have the option of staying for lunch at a cost of £5 per day. The timings for 30 hour spaces are 8:45am till 11:45am and 12:30pm till 3:30pm. Lunch will be 11.45am to 12.30pm and children have to bring a packed lunch from home.
Children are eligible for a place in the nursery the term after they turn 3. To enquire about spaces you can either telephone the school, email the office or come in person In order to arrange a visit to the nursery you must book in advance. Please note, we are unable to combine hours, so if you would like your child to attend our school nursery this will be either for every morning from 8:45am till 11:45am or for each afternoon 12:30pm till 3:30pm.
