Our Nursery offers 52 part time places. The morning nursery session is from 9.00am – 12.00pm, and the afternoon session start from 12.30pm – 3.30pm.
To apply for a place in the nursery, please visit our school office to put your child’s name down on the waiting list. Children become eligible for a place the term after their third birthday.
Places are allocated to children on our waiting list, at a termly nursery panel meeting, who will use the Local Authorities selection criteria. Further details can be found in the ‘Schools in Suffolk’ brochure (see the link below).
We will contact you when a place becomes available, to invite you and your child to visit the nursery and meet our staff. We will also talk about our induction programme and how this supports your child to make a smooth and happy start to their life at the school. Nursery pupils transfer to the reception classes in the September following their fourth birthday.
