Nursery Admissions

The academy offers 15 hours per week for all children from age 3 and an additional 15 hours for those eligible for 30 hours funded attendance. The nursery has a maximum of 26 places in the mornings and 26 in the afternoons. 

Admission to the nursery (Foundation Stage 1) is arranged by the academy after completion of our application form, available below or from the academy office.  We operate a waiting list and places are allocated on an age basis. 

Children are eligible to start in the nursery at the beginning of the term after their third birthday, but this is dependent on the availability of places within the unit.  Parents/carers can choose a morning or an afternoon session for their child to attend the nursery and while we cannot always accommodate the choices, we will liaise with parents/carers to offer sessions that are suitable for you.

You will need to bring your child’s birth certificate and proof of address before admission to the academy.

Admission into the academy's reception class is by application to North East Lincolnshire Council in January each year for the following September.  Allocation is decided by the local authority in April.  Parents have the right to appeal if they are unhappy with the decision made by the local authority.

Admission into other year groups is arranged by North East Lincolnshire Council as a transfer from a previous school, this is referred to as an "in-year admission" in the information below.
