The Nursery class provides for children from the age of three for 15 or 30 hours. Part time places can be arranged over two and a half days or five morning/afternoon sessions. Bespoke places are also available.
In September children who reach the age of five on or after 1st September that school year will be admitted to the Reception Class. There are then two Key Stage One classes - Year 1 (during which time the children will turn 6) and Year 2 (during which time the children will turn 7). The maximum class size will be 30 pupils.
At the end of Key Stage 1 (Infants) the children will automatically transfer to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School. There is liaison between the two schools so that the transfer of your child takes place smoothly. However, if any parent wishes their child to go to another school they must make an application to their preferred school.
The Nursery has places available for up to 30 children per session. Acceptance into the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the Reception class. The Key Stage One classes have a maximum class size of 30 pupils. There is one class per year group.
