ADMISSIONS TO NURSERY
To apply for a place in our Nursery for academic year (2021/2022), please fill in the following application form and return it to the school office in a sealed envelope marked nursery admissions.
St Mary’s CE Primary School offers a part time, morning or afternoon provision for up to 26 children in each session.
Applications are made using a Nursery Admission Form, on or after a child's second birthday.
Names are put on the Nursery Waiting List in order application and grouped according to the age of the child.
If the nursery receives more applications than there are places available, places will be offered using the criteria below and priority will be given to children who will be four at the time of admission. Priority will then be given using the criteria below to three years olds according to the term of their birthday.
- Children with educational, medical or social needs including Looked After Children (application on these grounds will have to be supported in writing by the relevant professional involved, such as a Social Worker or GP etc).
- Children with a brother or sister at the same school when the child is due to be admitted.
- Children who live closed to the school (a straight line on a map from the parental home to the school is used to calculate the distance).
- Children whose parents choose the school on denominational grounds. Applicants are required to provide a supporting letter from their Vicar with the application.
Admission to Nursery does not guarantee a place at St Mary’s CE Primary School. Parents must apply through Slough Borough Council for admission to the main school. There are separate admission criteria for the main school.
