St. Anne’s is a warm, happy and inclusive nursery that is led by a qualified teacher.
We are happy to be able to offer mornings, afternoons or 30 hours if you are eligible for the funding.
We overstaff our setting, to improve ratios of our youngest children, including a Polish speaking teaching support assistant – this really helps to settle our Polish pupils who might be just beginning to learn English.
It is self-contained with regards to toilet facilities, promoting independence from the beginning.
Ours is an open door policy and we will always share celebrations or concerns with parents/carers at the end of the session. You are more than welcome to come and visit our setting to see what we have to offer.
Please be aware that nursery classes do not have a catchment area. This is because not all schools in the city have a nursery class attached to them.
How to apply for a nursery class place
It is advisable to contact your preferred nursery class at least a year before your child will start. Parents/carers need to be aware that it does not matter how early an application is submitted, the place will be allocated against the school's selection criteria.
To apply for a nursery class place parents/carers must contact their preferred nursery class directly. Parents/carers will be given a form to complete and information about how selection for a nursery class place is made at their preferred school. It is important for parents/carers to understand that although there is no catchment area for nursery classes; due to the high level of demand for spaces, schools will have their own selection criteria which will differ at each school.
If you are unsuccessful in securing a place, do not contact the school’s admissions department as they have no input into nursery class allocation of places.
