*Parent Consultation

We have been granted funding by the local authority to increase our intake and are looking to enrol 3-year-olds and rising 3-year-old children in our nursery setting.  The nursery will have capacity for 26 pupils.

We will also be able to increase the capacity for the school intake raising the published admission number (PAN) from 20 to 30 with scheduled pupil growth through reception intake onwards. 

The planned extension is due for completion late 2021.

A six-week consultation process to amend our funding agreement to age 2-11 started on Monday 18th January 2021 and ends on Monday 8th March 2021.  More information is provided on the school website link above, or we invite you to request a phone call or socially distanced meeting if you would like to discuss these proposed changes.

Should you not be able to participate in the above and would like to make comments about the proposed change, please send this via email to
