Children are normally admitted to our nursery class in the September after their third birthday, subject to a place being available. The school is responsible for allocating Nursery places and we use the HCC rules for allocating school places (link above)

Places in our nursery class are not restricted to pupils who will subsequently be attending Ashwell Primary School.

Tours for September 2021 Prospective Parents

Dear prospective parents, we are delighted to be able to support you over the coming months as you make important decision about your child’s future schooling.

As a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have specific systems of controls in place to protect our children, staff and school community. Regretfully, we are unable to run our school tours and open mornings in the usual way. We know how important this time is for you and we are keen to show prospective parents around our school and for you to meet key staff in person. We have therefore decided that we will operate school tours with the following measures in place:

    • All tours will take place outside of the school day (see below)
    • Tours will take place in small groups of no more than 6 ( including the Headteacher)
    • We are unable to accommodate children on the tours and are only able to accommodate one parent per child at this time
    • All visitors will be required to:
      • wear a mask or face covering
      • adhere to social distancing
      • hand sanitise on entering and exiting the building
      • participate in our track and trace by leaving their contact details

*We fully understand that viewing a school in this way is far from ideal but we hope that it will offer the best experience given the current circumstances. Our safety protocol will be regularly reviewed and adapted according to government guidance.

For anyone who would who is unable to or would rather not visit our school in person we have created a virtual tour to show you around.
