Admissions

The majority of our pupils come from the village of Grassmoor although if space is available we do take children from further afield.  Everyone, even families within the village, must state a preference for a particular school.  Letters are sent out in November to all children in the nursery due to start school the following academic year asking them to state their preferred school.  This information is sent to the LEA who will inform parents of their child’s place in April.

 

Our admission limit for reception in 2017/8 is 40.  We are always very happy to meet and show round any parent who is thinking of sending their child here.  Please telephone Mrs Flint on 850349 to arrange a visit.

 

Children join the nursery from a wider field that the normal ‘catchment’ area.  Children must be at least 3 years old to be accepted for a place.  Children on the Safeguarding register or have, or are likely to have special needs are put to the top of the list, after that children are admitted on age order.  It is hoped that all children who wish it are able to have at least two terms of nursery education.
