Early Years - Nursery & Reception


Nursery Admissions

The school deals with admissions for Nursery and intake throughout the year, with an open day in March for parents and carers to visit nursery, meet the staff and ask any questions.  Due to the current pandemic the open day has been replaced by virtual tours of the school, which are available at the bottom of the page. 


If you are interested in a nursery place please complete the application form and return it to the school office.
The school nursery runs morning and afternoon sessions:
Morning 8:50am to 11:50am

Afternoon 11:50am - 2:50pm    (Amended due to COVID to 12:15pm - 3:15pm for 2020/21)


We take children from 2 years old and accept paid and funded places. 

The charge for a 3 hour session is £12 for 2020 but is being reviewed with a view to increase to £15 per session in 2021.


We usually offer end of the day care via Early Birds to bring the session time from 2:50pm to 3:15pm to tie in with the end of the school day, which is £2.00.  Suspended due to COVID as time amended. 


Children who are 3 and over can also access our Busy Birds Before and After School Club.

Further information on funding for 2, 3 and 4 year old children can be found via Coventry City Council's website
