Criteria for admission to Nursery

To register your child for nursery please visit the school office with your child's birth certificate.

Nursery Admissions are dealt with by the school and we follow the Kirklees Admissions criteria.  Children will not normally be allowed to change from one Kirklees nursery to another, unless there is a significant change of address. Entry will be staggered during the first week of the term of admission to allow children to settle. Children are able to attend for 15 hours per week and from now, if parents meet the eligibility criteria can attend for an additional 15 hours per week making a total of 30 hours. Please see the website and complete the online eligibility screening for your unique code.  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/30-hours-free-childcare-eligibility 

Special admission priorities may apply to children with special educational or social needs, after consultation with outside agencies.
