Be happy together, Believe together, Achieve together


Nursery Admissions


If you would like to enrol your child in our Nursery, please contact our office who will send you a nursery admission form.  Once this is completed you will need to return the form to school in person with your child's birth certificate.  Your child will then be added to the waiting list for a place in our Nursery.  


Please note: Your child can be entered onto the waiting list at any age!


Please ensure you keep the admission form up to date with contact numbers and home address, this will ensure the letter that is sent to parents will reach the correct address.  In April/May you will receive a letter inviting you to attend a Nursery parent meeting, if CV19 restrictions allow at the time.  If not other arrangements will be made.  It is important that all parents attend this meeting as you will learn all information needed before your child starts Nursery for the following school year.  If you do not attend this meeting, you child's starter pack will not be given until you have spoken to the Headteacher.


In Rice Lane, children start Nursery the term after their third birthday.


For any more information, please do not hesitate to contact the school office via telephone or email:
