St Michael's CofE VA Nursery & Infant School

Admissions

Admission to the Infant school needs to be requested through the Local Authority. Children can start in our nursery the term after their 3rd birthday.  If you would like to register please contact the school office for a registration form. You are very welcome to come and have a look around the nursery and/or school just give us a ring on 01263 732260.

Whenever a child is admitted to this School, into Nursery, Reception or at any other point we undertake to:

  • Give children and parents as much information as possible about St Michael’s School and the education we provide
  • Make each child’s start to school a happy and successful one
  • Begin a lasting partnership with parents.

As a VA School this school is its own admissions authority meaning that its policy is determined by its Governing Board. Governors have chosen to enact a policy that is substantially no different from that of the Local Authority.

School and Nursery Admissions Policy

Appeals

Every effort is made to make a place available for your child in our school. However, schools have a limit on the number of children they can take. In the case of this school the number is 20 on entry to Reception. This figure is set by the Local Authority (LA) and agreed with Governors. If the number of children wanting a place is below the set figure, your child will be offered a place. There may, however, come a point when there are too many children of that year group for them all to be given a place. If a place is not available on application, you have the right to appeal to the Local Authority. Appeals are heard by an independent panel. The Appeals timetable along with A Guide to Admission Appeals can be obtained from the Admissions Team at County Hall.
