Where learning comes to life

Our Nursery

Start your child's learning journey with us, a school where learning comes to life!

Children develop learning and skills both indoors and outside at our fantastic Nursery, with access to extensive, high quality resources. Children are taught by our experienced nursery staff who are then able to support with transition into the main school.
We welcome parents to look around our school and nursery, see what we have to offer and to ask any questions you may have.

Nursery Admissions Policy


When is the Nursery available?

Our Nursery is available for 38 weeks per year throughout term time. Sessions timings are as follows:

Morning sessions are 8.30am until 11.30am (children can be collected from 11.25am)

Lunchtime for full time children is 11.30am until 12.30pm

Afternoon sessions are 12.30pm until 3.30pm (children can be collected from 3.25pm)


15 hours free childcare

All families in England with children aged 3 or 4 are entitled to 15 hours of FREE childcare. This can be taken as a morning or afternoon place. We will always try to allocate your preferred session but this is dependent on spaces available.

15 hours free childcare - Find out more about what you are entitled to through the government's 'Childcare Choices' website


30 hours free childcare

Working families in England are entitled to 30 hours of FREE childcare. Click the link below to see if you are entitled to a 30 hour code and then let us know.

30 hours can be taken in the following options:

  • 5 mornings (Mon-Fri), lunch time and part of the afternoon session finishing at 2.30pm
  • 4 full days (8:30-3:30) and one morning session (8:30-11:30) - this is 31 hours so has an additional weekly cost of £4.50
  • 5 full days (8:30-3:30) - this is 35 hours so it has an additional weekly cost of £22.50

To be entitled you, and any partner, must each expect to earn (on average) at least £142 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage). If you, or your partner, are on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, or you're unable to work because you are disabled or have caring responsibilities, you could still be eligible. You can get 30 hours free childcare at the same time as claiming Universal Credit, tax credits, childcare vouchers or Tax-Free Childcare. However, you can't get 30 hours free childcare if either you, or your partner, each individually expect to earn £100,000 or more.

To keep your 30 hours free childcare place you need to check your details are up to date every 3 months.
