How do you apply for a place at Priestmead?

 

First, why not come and visit us! 

 

95% school population live within the red area shown in the map.  This helps to create a close community.

 

However, there are exceptions who live slightly further, defined by the orange areas.

Our Published Admission Number (PAN) for Reception is 120 children over four classes. We have 52 children in our Nursery, 12 children in our Rainbow Resource and 840 children in Reception to Y6.

How do I get a place for my child in your NURSERY?

 

We have a 52-place Nursery for 3-4 year olds.  As part of the transition, we do home visits for new families and also a phased start so children get used to being part of our Nursery.  Every child has a Keyworker who will be your point of contact.  We offer the FREE 15 hours from 8.40am-11.40am or 12.40pm-3.40pm.

 

Sadly, a place in Priestmead Nursery does NOT guarantee a place in our Reception.
