There are 20 part time, mornings only, nursery places available each September. Additionally, we work in partnership with our on-site Early Year’ provider, Marple Childcare, to offer afternoon sessions and Before and After School Care Clubs. These sessions are open to all parents in addition to those in receipt of the extended 30 hours funding who may use this to pay for this additional childcare provision.
Parents and prospective pupils are very welcome to visit the school. It is usually better to make an appointment so that proper arrangements can be made for the Headteacher or other member of staff to show you around when the school is open so you can see the staff and children at work.
Parents of new intake children are invited to meet the staff who will be involved in the teaching or care of their child in the term prior to their child’s entry. At this meeting the teacher will discuss the teaching strategies we use in school and how we can best work together to become partners in the learning process.
Children are invited to spend time in school in the term prior to their entry into the reception class so that they can.become.familiar.with.their.surroundings, the.staff.and.the.children.in.their.class.
If you are interested in applying for a place in any year group, please contact school on 01663 762378 to arrange a visit.
