Admissions

The purpose of Greatstone School Nursery admissions policy is to ensure that the facility is accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community.

In the event that the Nursery is over subscribed the following criteria will be applied in priority order.

3 year old children with:

  • A current family association – where a brother or sister is already on roll at Greatstone School Nursery or Greatstone Primary School and the family continues to live at the same address as when the sibling was admitted or has moved to a property within 2 miles.
  • Health reasons – the evidence for this must be strong and the Governors will require written evidence from a qualified person. Parental health is not a criterion.
  • The nearness to home and ease of access to school as measured by a straight line from home to school.

Birth certificates must be shown prior to admission.
