New for September 2020
Free of charge full time places are going to be offered to children who are ready to access 30 hours. This will be offered regardless of whether they are eligible for government funding. Our school will take into account the best number of hours to suit each individual child's social and developmental needs. Parents who qualify for the 30 hours free childcare must register with the government for this service. For information on this and to check eligibility please visit https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/
Application forms for nursery admission are available from the school office or they can be downloaded below. On completion of this form, please return to the school office and provide proof of date of birth (birth certificate or passport). Places are not allocated for next year’s Nursery class until Easter 2020. Please note that children who are currently at West Denton Primary Nursery are not guaranteed a place in our Reception. In line with local authority procedures, a separate application for Reception has to be made.
Visits to the school by any interested parents are always welcomed, please contact the school office to make an appointment.
We also arrange for families to visit the school in the summer term before your child begins school, to meet other children and staff.
Nursery additional hours 2019-20
For the first time, we have offered our current nursery children the opportunity to have additional sessions over and above their 15 hours fully funded places. This will benefit some families who feel their children will benefit from more sessions and allow some of our parents the opportunity to work if they chose to.
This is additional to the 15 hours of funded care and is chargeable. The cost of each session is £10 plus £1.90 for lunch. This must be booked and paid weekly or monthly in advance to the school office.
The early uptake on this is healthy and working well.
