New children who are 3 years old before the start of the school term in which they join us are eligible for 15 hours per week of free* Nursery Education (term time only). You may wish to consider paying for some sessions in the school term prior to this, to begin to familiarise your child with the Nursery environment and routines, or alternatively once your child has settled in, you may wish to consider purchasing some additional sessions, or some further Breakfast, Lunch or Tea Club sessions. These places are subject to availability, and for those children too young to qualify for the 15 hours of free funding, will be offered to applicants in order of birth date.
Additional sessions are offered on a termly basis.
|Your child’s 3rd birthday falls:||Funded 15 hour place||Self-funded place|
|1st April – 31st August||Start September (Autumn term)||Start April (Summer term)|
