Nursery Admissions Information

Our Nursery runs from 9.00am to 12.00noon.  In addition to our standard 15 hours of provision per week we also run a ‘Shining Stars Club’ that provides a daily child care service for the families who attend our Nursery. There is an additional charge for this service. We also have close links with the local Children’s Centre and Family Services.


We have a single intake each year with all 30 children being phased in during the first week in September. Our rule of thumb is to invite our youngest children to join first, giving them the best opportunity to settle in to school life before the older children join them.

Nursery Admission Criteria 2018-2019

Shining Stars

Shining Stars Club takes place every school day afternoon and therefore offers a continuous child care service from 9.00am to 3.15pm for our parents. The cost for 2015-16 is £15.00 per afternoon.  Children bring their own packed lunch which they eat together and there is time to explore a huge range of resources through play during the afternoon session. This service offers a lovely social as well as educational experience for the children and helps them to make friends. For more information regarding the Shining Stars Club please contact Mrs Theresa Ellis (Shining Stars Club Leader) through the school office.
