NEW TRIAL THIS SEPTEMBER!  – We are trialing out taking rising 3’s during the Autumn Term 2021 into our pre-Nursery.  This means children who will be 3 years old in September, October and November 2021, from the day after they turn 3 years, could potentially take up a place before they qualify for government funding from 1st January 2022. These places would be offered on a paid basis, at a reasonable cost, for either 15 hours or 30+ hours per week.  Please contact Mrs Isaac in the school office (or if you prefer, the link for her email is below) for more information. All being well, as this has proved fairly popular with parents,  we will proceed with this into the Spring and Summer terms of 2022.
