Admission to Nursery

We have a single intake of nursery children each September. We have a 16 full time (30 hours) places for those children who qualify for 30 hours free childcare. We also have 10 part time (15 hours) morning places and 10 part time (15 hours) afternoon places.

To apply for a place please contact the school for an application form. Admission to our nursery follows the same admission criteria as the Bradford Authority Admissions Department and where number of applications exceed the number of available places priority will be given to the following categories:

  1. Looked after children or children who were previously looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted or became subject to a residence or special guardianship order.
  2. Children who have exceptional social or medical needs, supported by a written recommendation from the child’s paediatrician/consultant or professional from Children’s Services. The letter must explain why the nursery is the only suitable nursery to meet the child’s needs and why no other nursery could provide the appropriate support for the child.
  3. Children who have a brother or sister, living at the same address and who will still be attending the school at the time of admission.
  4. Children whose home address is within the school’s priority admission area*.
  5. All other children.

Children are admitted into Reception in the September following their fourth birthday.

The admission criteria will apply to all children seeking a school place, whatever their term of entry. The place offered will be reserved on condition that it is taken up within the same school year.
