Most children come into the Nursery class when they are three years old or shortly afterwards. You will need to go to the school office to fill in an application form for a nursery place. We currently have morning places from 9am -12pm, afternoon places 12.30-3.30 and full-time places 9am-3.30pm for entitled children. We also offer extended services 8am-9am and 3.30-6pm (charged separately). Our nursery is open only during term-time (38 weeks a year) so will ideally suit parents with flexible working pattern or working term-time only.
We accept Tax Free Childcare payments and childcare vouchers can offer you flexibility around the days.
|Application Deadline||Start Date|
|End of June||September|
|End of November||January|
There is no automatic transfer from the Nursery to the Reception classes so you will have to apply to the Learning Trust for a Reception place. The deadline for reception class applications is 15th January 2019. Please ask at the school office for further advice.
Forest Schools @ Benthal
Every Monday, the pupils take part in Forest School activities. This is led by Venti Costantini ,an accredited Forest School teacher. The pupils are taken out in groups of 8 to our school garden to explore and experience the natural world for themselves.
