Nursery staff will make a home visit by appointment to all new starters. Parents of children attending nursery are required to follow the Leeds procedures for applying for a Reception class place. Please note a place in our Nursery does not guarantee a place in our school.

If your child was born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017 inclusive you are eligible to apply for a Reception place for September 2021.
