Before applying, Parents should visit the ECC website (link above) to check the following:
- check that they live in the Essex administrative area (parents should apply via their home authority if not living in Essex)
- read the primary school admissions booklet
- check the priority admission (catchment) area for the schools they are interested in applying for.
NOTE: There is no 'catchment guarantee' and the straight line distance of the last place offered varies year on year.
Please be aware that attending our school Nursery does not guarantee your child a place to the main school i.e. Reception. You will need to apply for a Reception place in the relevant main school round of admissions.
To apply for a Nursery place please contact the school main office for an application form.
Our Nursery can accommodate up to 52 children. These places are offered as 26 AM or 26 PM places. The AM session is 8.30 am - 11.30 am. The PM session is 12.30 pm - 3.30 pm. Our offer is 15 hours per week over Mondays-Fridays.
