Nursery admissions are dealt with by the school, application forms can be collected from the School Office. Once returned to school you will be sent a confirmation letter that your application has been received and we will then write to you again in the Spring of the year your child is due to start. The deadline for nursery applications is 20th April for admissions that September.

During the year in which your child turns 4, you must apply to the Local Authority for their full time place in school. Attending our Nursery class will not guarantee this full time place.

The Local Authority admissions round is normally open from the September before your child is due to start school until the following January. It is important to apply before the deadline closes as the school is over subscribed and missing the deadline may mean your child is not given a place.

Please see the links below to our Admissions Policy, a map of the catchment area for the school and the Central Bedfordshire School Admissions website for more information on applying.
