Aims and Ethos



Our school Nursery has 52 places; 26 in the morning and 26 in the afternoon.  

Our sessions run as follows-

morning session: 8.45am - 11.45am

afternoon session: 12.15pm – 3.15pm

Parents wishing to send their child to the Nursery will need to complete an application form which is available to download below or from the school office.

The form needs to be completed and returned to the school with the original birth certificate.

Applications can be accepted from age 2 but places are allocated for the September following a child’s 3rd birthday.  Please see our Admissions Policy for deadline dates.

Parents need to be aware that a place in our Nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school.  Parents of children in our Nursery will be advised in writing when they need to apply for their first school place through Suffolk County Council.

If you would like to come and visit our Nursery, please contact the school office for further advice on our Open Days.
