Parents are offered a tour of the school with senior leaders prior to accepting their child’s nursery place.

On admission parents are requested to complete an application form and provide a copy of their child’s birth certificate.

Should all places be offered and the nursery is not full (64 places) then places are offered to children who are three in birth date order.

The school administrator allocates the places following the guidelines laid down by Bradford Council. The school administrator maintains the waiting list for places and allocates accordingly.

The parents are sent a letter offering a place and they confirm their acceptance by returning the acceptance slip.

Children visit the school for a pre-arranged stay and play session, the visits allow the children to meet their teacher and familiarise themselves with the nursery setting helping your child with the settling in process. Teachers will assess the child’s individual needs with parents at the stay and play session.

A parents information evening will take place for all parents of the new Nursery Class prior to their child’s visit.

Parents will be informed by letter about the parents information evening. During the evening they will receive the school prospectus, the details for the child’s start date is provided on their stay and play session.

If parents do not attend the information evening they are contacted by the school office to arrange to collect their prospectus.

The children are admitted in small groups staggered over 2 weeks.
