“St. Michael’s Church of England School, established upon Christian foundations, and living out the Christian faith, is committed to providing every child with an excellent education.”
We promote our Vision through the key words:
‘Create – Equip – Partner’
We are pleased to welcome you to our nursery admissions page and look forward to welcoming all of you who choose to apply for a nursery place at St. Michael’s. We ask that prospective parents note that the Board of Governors are responsible for admissions to our Church of England Voluntary Aided Nursery and are outlined in the policy below.
Prospective parents should fill out the application form and return it to the Admissions Officer at the school office along with the Church Supplementary Form as applicable.
For our January 2021 start date, we will first be accepting children who turned 3 before the 31st December 2020.
Due to COVID-19 we will be working out how to welcome prospective parents to visit the school in the Autumn Term or if we hold virtual meetings.
Admissions for January 2021 Entry onwards
The policy for admissions in January 2021 onwards, as determined by the Board of Governors, will be available to download by clicking on the link below once confirmed by the Board of Governors along with the Church supplementary form.
We are currently working on the proposed costs for breakfast and after school care. Our plan is to provide this for nursery children and this information will be shared in the coming months. This is also dependent on guidance due to COVID-19
15 hours free entitlement for 3-year-olds
All children are entitled to 15 hours per week funded nursery provision from the first term after the child’s 3rd birthday and we can offer 3/4-year-old places from this time, subject to availability.
30 hours funding for 3-year-olds
If you work and your child is three or four years old, you may now be eligible for 30 hours of funded childcare a week.
