Our school staff are always happy to help with admissions and a warm welcome awaits when you come to look round and meet us.


We have a 60 place nursery setting offering 30 places each morning and 30 places each afternoon session. 

The universal 15 hour funding can be taken over 5 morning sessions, 5 afternoon sessions or 2½ days. NB: The latter option will incur a lunchtime session charge. The extended 30 hour entitlement is offered over 4½ days with the option of paying for the 10th session if it is required. Please refer to the charging policy for more information regarding cost.   

Allocated sessions using the extended entitlement will need to be reconfirmed every term, which requires parent's to apply via HMRC and bring  the unique 11 digit code to the school office to secure a 30 hour place. Please see the childcare choices website for more information regarding eligibility and guidance on how to claim this extended funding. 

The Nursery Charging and Admissions policy can be found in the Policies section of our website.

You can contact the school office to add your child to the expression of interest list and we will then contact you near to the time your child is eligible to take up their place to make arrangements for visits and familiarisation sessions. We allocate places according to our admission policy. Sessions may be limited depending on availability. 

When allocating places for nursery, we follow the North Yorkshire Admissions Policy.
